1909-1910 E97 C. A. Briggs Co. Red Murray PSA EX-MT 6

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $840

Addendum: The printed catalog identified this card as the highest-graded example, but there is a single NM 7 graded higher. Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with just one higher! Exceptional high-grade example of New York Giants outfielder Red Murray from the extremely rare E97 C. A. Briggs Co. series. This 30-card set was issued in 1909-1910 by the C. A. Briggs Co. This set is closely related to several other candy sets from the era, which share the same format, and, in many cases, the same player image. The cards are very similar in design but much rarer than their E93 counterparts and can easily be distinguished from E93s by the attractive brown-printed checklist of the complete set and the advertisement for "C. A. Briggs Co., Lozenge Makers, Boston, Mass." along the bottom on the reverse of each card. As is the case with most 1910-era tobacco and ā€œEā€ card issues, E97 C. A. Briggs Company cards each measure approximately 1.5 x 2.75 inches. The card is bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, four strong corners, and centering slightly to the bottom. The checklist on the back is printed in bold brown ink and is perfectly clean. This is an exceptionally attractive and extremely highly graded E97 C. A. Briggs Company sample. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $840
