Graded EX 60 by SGC. This is the ONLY D303 Mother's Bread example ever graded of Morgan by SGC or PSA. Extremely rare sample card of Ray Morgan of the Washington Senators from the 1916 D303 Mother’s Bread bakery series. Issued in 1916 by the New Orleans branch of the General Baking Company, these cards are identical in design to the E106 American Caramels and the D303 General Baking Co. sets, but they feature an advertisement for Mother’s Bread of New Orleans, LA. on the reverse. Mother's Bread are so rare they are totally “off the radar” of most collectors. There is no question that they are considerably rarer than the related General Baking or American Caramel issues. The Standard Catalog checklist for this set is incomplete and continues to be a work in progress. This is an exceptionally attractive card with bright, crisp colors, outstanding surface gloss, even wear on the corners, and exceptional centering. The reverse has a boldly printed advertisement. This is a very clean and attractive sample card from this exceptionally scarce prewar food issue. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
