1903 E107 Breisch-Williams Eddie Plank HOF Rookie
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,740
Graded POOR 10 by SGC. E107 Breisch-Williams series card featuring Hall of Fame pitcher Eddie Plank of the Philadelphia Athletics of the American League. All E107 cards are extremely rare, but an example of Hall of Famer Eddie Plank is especially desirable to serious collectors, both because this is widely recognized as his rookie card and because the portrait is the same as that which appears on his famous T206 card. Interestingly, the E107 Plank is much rarer than the T206 Plank. This is only the third E107 Plank we have ever offered (the other two, both graded POOR 10 by SGC, sold for $7,050 in REA's 2011 auction and $5,288 in REA's 2010 auction, respectively). Issued in 1903, E107s have long been revered by collectors. This set represents the only major baseball-card set of the era, features many players that appear in no other sets, and includes the first cards ever issued of many important stars and Hall of Famers, including Eddie Plank. The card displays various condition problems, including rounded corners, heavy creasing, and ink on the blank reverse. Despite the obvious condition issues, this is a very presentable and desirable low-grade example of this extraordinary rarity. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $4,740
