    1917 E135 Collins-McCarthy "Baseball's Hall of Fame" Near Set (128/200). NOTE: A correction to a grade has been made not reflected in the catalog - there are 10 cards graded SGC Fair 1.5.

    From the Cleary Collection. Along the west coast, the 1910's era saw a limited number of comprehensive baseball card promotions and when there was one it naturally featured teams from the Pacific Coast League. The set that essentially introduced major league baseball to the west coast was the E135 Collins-McCarthy series promoted as "Baseball's Hall of Fame." We can only guess how well they went over with fans but by the fact that they are by no means easy to find today it seems they were not a great find. That just makes acquiring them today all the more exciting. Offered for the first time ever, we offer this 128-card near set of this exciting series. Thirty-two cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: SGC VG 3: 4 cards, #'s 72 Hendrix, 101 Loudan, 175 Turner and 199 Zeider; SGC Good+ 2.5: 9 cards, #'s 95, 98, 109 Marsans, 139 Rixey, 142 Roush, 148, 161, 185 Weaver and 194 Wood; SGC Good 2: 6 cards, #'s 59, 70, 76 High/White Stockings, 86 Jennings, 133, 198; SGC Fair 1.5: 10 cards, #'s 11 Baker, 12 Bancroft, 13, 25 Carey, 31 Collins, 36 Crawford, 64, 93, 110, 137 Rice; SGC Poor 1: 3 cards, #'s 46 Faber, 55 Gandil, 187 Wheat.
