    1902-11 W600 Sporting Life (Type 1) Jack Chesbro (Street Clothes) SGC 80 EX/NM 6 - The Highest SGC Example! For Hall of Famer Jack Chesbro, his W600 Sporting Life cabinet makes for a welcome addition considering his 1903 E107 Breisch Williams card is so scarce and rarely offered for sale. Chesbro appears in the W600 Sporting Life series as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates and the New York Highlanders, both depicting him in a formal "Street Clothes" portrait. Chesbro pitched from 1899 to 1902 for Pittsburgh. The earliest his New York card could appear would be 1903. This is unmistakably a "Type 1" W600 with the dated caption ending, "...Club of 1902" confirming this is the earliest card known featuring the 1904 41-game winner. Graded SGC 80 EX/NM 6. There are just five total entries for Chesbro on the SGC census. This is one of just two confirmed of Chesbro in street clothes. Very modest corner wear and a scratch of the top layers on the upper left corner of the otherwise clean reverse is all we find to justify the SGC assessment. Eye appeal is exceptional with a crisply printed portrait and not a single pencil or ink notation so commonly found on cards from this series, is present.
