Graded EX+ 70 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! This is a remarkably high grade example for the 1903 E107 Breisch-Williams set. Extremely attractive sample card of Chicago White Sox first baseman Frank Isbell. It is interesting to note that Isbell’s name is misspelled "Isabel" on this card. Isbell was a versatile player who at one time or another played every position, including pitcher. He joined the White Sox as a first baseman in 1900, the year before the team joined the newly formed American League. Isbell held the record for most errors in a World Series by a second baseman until 1981, when Davey Lopes won that unfavorable crown. Bright and clean, with four strong corners, an outstanding image, excellent centering, and a virtually flawless printed reverse. This is a very striking and outstanding example from one of the early twentieth century's most substantial and highly regarded sets. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++.
