D303 Mother's Bread

Post by fisherboy7 on Sat Jun 25, 2011 5:14 pm

I know D303 Mother's cards are extremely tough, but haven't really had access to much information about the set beyond that. Would very much appreciate any information and/or experiences with this set that you could share with the board.

A few opening questions....

How much tougher are Mother's than D303 General Baking? Do Mother's Bread cards outprice General Baking significantly?

Have any ancillary pieces to D303 been discovered ie. advertising/packaging?

Are there any cards in the set that are especially difficult?

The checklist is not complete on this set. It also has the same fronts as Tango & e106. I think over time you will see Mothers and Tango have the checklist as e106.I think it was th esame group of cards used but the Mothers and tango are Louisiana and very scarce. If there was no Tango find there would only be about 3 known Tango cards in todays hobby and Mothers is a greater number but still very scarce.

General is also tough but not as tough as mothers and the General checklist is also not complete. I predict a Louisiana find or a southern find that will ad to all 3 checklist and it will eventually be know these sets are related by front and a 50 card checklist.

Thanks for the helpful response, Jim.

Interesting point about the incomplete checklist and the relationship to Tango & e106. I've seen Mother's referred to as a 1914 set and also as a 1916 set. Can you provide any clarity on this for us?

I also recall someone mentioning that there are back variations on the D303 Mother's - true?

Thanks again for the info.

This is the checklist I came up with-no Cobb to date but remember the Tango just showed up and I am thinking the Mothers should show up also. In the General set each pose is accurately identified as in e106-not sure why Mothers and Tango have the same cards identified wrong.

Leon sold most of his in a past B&L auction and I think the year is 1914 but not sure on that and I am not aware of any back variations-I think all are the same.

only reason I know a little about these sets is because the e106 has several Baltimore players in it and these other sets use the same fronts but have the Baltimore players misidentified in them.
