Extremely rare E107 Breisch-Williams series card featuring Hall of Fame pitcher Vic Willis from the Boston Beaneaters of the National League. This card is widely recognized as Willis' rookie card as it is the first standard card issue featuring the legendary Hall of Fame pitcher (only W600 and M101-1 predate but both are large-format issues). The E107 Breisch-Williams set includes many players who appear in no other issues, and is all the more significant to advanced collectors as it also features the first cards ever issued for many important players, including Vic Willis. Graded GOOD 2 by SGC, this example offers a crisp image and centering only slightly toward the left. Creasing, even corner rounding, and light stains account for the modestly assigned grade. Attractive and extremely rare Hall of Fame rookie example from one of card collecting's most significant sets. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
