1909 Briggs E97 Chicago cubs

In 1909, the C.A. Briggs Company Lozenge Makers of Boston Mass. released a 30 subject baseball card set to promote their brand. Regarded as one of the rarest “E” card issues ever produced, only three Hall of Famers are included. One of the best parts of this set are the exceedingly rare black and white versions of these cards called "proofs" which have a significantly higher price tag than their standard 30 player checklist regular issue counterparts.
