Default 1921 Koesters Bread Cards

Greetings, I was wondering if we have any experts on the 1921 Koesters Bread cards? They appear on front exactly like the E121 set but these are blank baked. Are there any identifying marks to look for to id these cards?
Look forward to a reply.

Certain players appear exclusively in the Koester set but for the most part they are blank backed E121 cards. Also the card stock is slightly thicker for these cards.

As I understand it, there are 52 cards in the Koester D383 set, including the Giants and Yankees 1921 teams only. How difficult are these to obtain and what is the price range?

Not overly common but can be found. Problem is authentication as they are basically the same as W575-1 cards. There also supposedly a sheet of 40 players that predates the individual cards. Cards were a poster put out by the E h Koester bread company. I have 2 cards that were from one of these posters that have a thicker card stock which SGC will not authenticate as Koester Bread or W575. Also cards that are confirmed Koester Bread by PSA will not be confirmed by SGC as such and are called W575-1 by SGC. There are some Koester bread cards currently on eBay which are way overpriced so I would be careful if buying. There are a few players that appear only in Koester bread that are not in W575.

A lot of the cards are the same poses as the E121, but there are players-and coaches-who are in the Koester Bread who are not in the E121 set. These include:

Jesse Barnes
Joe Berry
Eddie Brown
Jesse Burkett
Bill Cunningham
Alex Ferguson
Chicken Hawks
Fred Hoffman
Johnny Mitchell
Charles O'Leary (some argument whether or not O'Leary is in the E121 set).
Bill Piercy
Braggo Roth
Casey Stengel (forgot. Thank You, Leon.)

The cards are not easy to come by and prices vary, but the hardest cards are Burkett and O'Leary. A lot of examples from the set are trimmed.




Here is a link to the checklist:

Stengel is only in D383 too, I believe.

There's a guy named Chicken Hawks! He's from my neck of the woods -Santa Clara University. I need to get a card of his.
