I've been searching for 1903 Malachi Kittredge Baseball Card put out by The Williams Candy Co. Being a journyman catcher & former Manager I was told that was the only card he ever had. Any help would be appreciated. He was my wife's great,great uncle. Thanks Mike

1903-04 Breisch-Williams E107 #85 Malachi Kittredge Washington $1,500.00

The set is driving the price there, not the player.

You might see one pop up on ebay, but it's probably going to be a tough win as you'll battle vintage and type card collectors alike.

Here's a pic of the 1903 E107-1 Breisch-Williams (Type 1) 84 (Boston).



Good luck getting a card of him!

On most of the baseball statistic sites they spell his name with an "i", Kittridge.

By most grading standards, VG cards are often creased. That is the best you can get while having creases, but I don't think the crease is too bad considering the age and issue.

Check out this PSA 1. I am still not sure why...It's a pretty nice 1 in my eyes!



And for comparison...1,2 & 3 (check out the heavy corner crease on that O'Doul 2!

Mopar - If that is your Hodges, I would break it out and resubmit. Someone was having a bad day the day that one came across their desk I would say.

The Hodges is mine, but I am not concerned about the grade enough to resubmit. I have maybe 75-100 graded cards, most are autographed. I have never submitted one myself though. They were all purchases that made financial sense not for the grade but for the card itself. I am actually not a fan of graded cards at all.
