Description

Hindsight is 20/20 and that is apparent when a treasured card such as this 1953-54 Briggs Meats Erwin “Bob” Porterfield card surfaces. An average player through most of his career, Porterfield probably is not on many collectors' lists with the major exception of this very rare issue. As part of the 40-card set produced by the Briggs Meats Company distributed as the packing to their fresh meats products, most Briggs cards have been either trimmed to the edges or tossed away – this one is neither. As Briggs Meats singles go, this one is in very good condition. Barring some light abrasions and staining on the reverse, this card is still among the top examples in the hobby.
