1903 E107 Breisch-Williams Duke Farrell
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,292.50
Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. Rare and very distinctively designed E107 Breisch-Williams of catcher Duke Farrell from the Boston Americans. This card features Farrell dressed in street attire. Duke Farrell broke into professional baseball as a protégé of Cap Anson, who discovered him as a semi-pro player while the White Stockings were barnstorming New England. In 1891, Farrell had league highs of 12 HR and 110 RBI. He later led the NL in pinch hits three times, and pinch-hit for the Boston Puritans (later Red Sox) in the first World Series in 1903. Bright and crisp example, with flawless image, and light, even wear to the corners. The back has a few minor scrapes of surface paper loss from being removed from an album long ago, which caused the card to be harshly graded. At a glance, this card looks Excellent. This is a magnificent and very striking E107 example. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,292.50
