    1916 D303 Mothers' Bread Hal Chase SGC 40 VG 3. "Mothers' Bread" was touted as "The Perfect Loaf" by the General Baking Co. of New Orleans. Today, D303 cards, issued in 1916 can easily be touted as rare by any standard fitting the availability trend of most southern issues. Hal Chase was known as "Prince Hal" for his ability to be charming but was anything but princely. Bribes, betting and throwing games are all accusations that have followed Chase for a century. So despised by baseball leadership, when Chase tried to start a league in Mexico where he owned a café, American League president Ban Johnson had him deported back to the United States thanks to his relationship with the president of Mexico. Offered is a very clean and glossy example missing the all too common vertical crease but there is a light one in the upper right corner. Graded SGC 40 VG 3, this is the highest graded copy of only two graded by SGC to date. This rare entry is represented by less than forty total submissions.
