    Description

    Extremely Rare 1910 E221 Bishop & Co. Los Angeles Angels (Red) PCL Team Card. This is a card most of the most passionate "E" enthusiasts still only dream of owning. Amazingly, this is one of four different E221s available in this auction! The E221 series is at the top or very close the top of the "Rarest "E" Series List." Noted authority Mark Macrae conveyed to us that he believes there are just 36 total examples known in the hobby.

    Issued by the Bishop & Co. of Los Angeles, the thin-paper collectibles are premiums that were circulated (folded) inside packages of Bishop's Milk Chocolate. Mr. Macrae has the only known box and confirms a folded E221 fits perfectly inside. The cards advertise, "This is one of a series of 6 pictures showing each entire of League." Over a century later and a card of Sacramento has yet to be confirmed. Regardless what one may have in ones treasured holdings, the large (10" x 2-3/4"), colorful premiums with either a yellow, purple, red, green or blue commands your attention and reverence.

    This presentation is for a 20-member Los Angeles Angels team card with a bold red background. There is the center fold (as issued) plus other creases and some corner wear, the technical grade would be fair-good. Considering how few of these exist we recommend not letting condition sway you from adding this to your collection.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
