Graded GOOD+ 35 by SGC. Very attractive example of this classic bakery card featuring Hall of Famer Eddie Collins from the Philadelphia Athletics. This is one of Eddie Collins' rarest and most striking cards. Similar in design to tobacco and candy cards of the era, Brunners measure slightly larger than T206s, at 1.75 x 2.5 inches, and are considerably rarer than most 1910-era "E" and "T" card issues. The fronts feature very attractive full-color illustrations, each of which is unique to this issue. These bakery cards were issued in Buffalo and come with several different styles of advertising on the reverse. Bright and crisp, both front and back, with perfect registration, light wear on the corners, and centering a hint to the bottom. Aside from a couple light surface wrinkles on the front this is a beautiful card for the grade. The back of the card features advertising for Brunners Butter Krust brand bread and is boldly printed in green. This is an extremely attractive example of one of Collins' most striking cards from this rare prewar food issue. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
