1909-1910 E97 C. A. Briggs Co. Claude Rossman

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $600

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Only one example has been graded higher by SGC! Extremely attractive example of Claude Rossman (Detroit Tigers) from the extremely rare E97 C. A. Briggs Company candy issue. 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 to their E93 counterparts and can most easily be distinguished 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 “E” card issues, E97 C. A. Briggs Company cards each measure approximately 1.5 x 2.75 inches. The offered card presents with brilliant colors and a crisp image, with a slight tilt to the right. Even, honest wear at the corners. Boldly printed and clean reverse. This example is very attractive and in relatively high-grade, worthy of any high-quality E97 Briggs Co. set. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $600
