1903 E107 Breisch-Williams Ossee Schreckengost
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $705.00
Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. E107 Breisch-Williams card of Philadelphia Athletics catcher Ossee Schreckengost. Highly rated by Connie Mack as a defensive catcher and handler of pitchers, Schreckengost and Hall of Famer Rube Waddell formed a devastating duo for the early Athletics. Schreckengost despised shin guards (which were invented near the end of his career), and used a one-handed catching style over fifty years before it became an accepted technique. The image on this card is very bold, with strong contrast, and centered slightly to the right. Very bright, crisp, and clean, both front and back. Two heavy creases downgrade this card from a solid Vg-Ex. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $705.00
