1911 E100 Bishop and Company PCL Overview

E100 BackE100-1 11 Lerchen Yellow.jpgAfter its 1910 E99 release, Bishop and Company returned to produce the 1911 E100 set.

As was the case in its E99 set, the E100 cards again featured black and white player images against a colored background. The checklist also returned on the backs to help collectors assembling the 30-card set. In addition to the checklist, the Bishop and Company name was printed at the bottoms on the backs.

The key to the release is easily the card of Buck Weaver, a member of the 1919 Chicago Black Sox team that was banned for life after the World Series scandal. The set included mostly different players, although a few were the same from the E99 issue.

Two Types

A second subset identified as Type 2. Those cards had the same players on the fronts as described above but had blank backs instead of the checklist and the pictures were also backwards. In addition, some of the player name/team name information at the bottom is different from the regular Type 1 cards.

The Type 2 cards are generally rarer than the regular issue.
