1910 E90-2 American Caramel SGC Graded Collection Including Wagner (4)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,644

Collection of four 1910 E90-2 American Caramel Pittsburgh Pirates, highlighted by legendary Hall of Famer Honus Wagner. These cards were among the many highlights of a large totally untouched collection of 1910-era candy and tobacco cards consigned to this auction (all appear in the Internet-only section of the auction), which was saved for decades by the family of the original owner. Each card has been graded and encapsulated by SGC (submitted by REA). These extremely distinctive and scarce "E" cards feature members of the World Champion 1909 Pittsburgh Pirates. The key card in the set is Honus Wagner. The example in this group is low-grade but is still a very attractive card. This is one of Wagner's most striking cards, and is especially popular as it features a portrait image very similar to that which appears on his famous T206 card. All the cards in this group have exceptional eye appeal: two Nick Maddox (SGC VG/EX 50 and VG 40), Dots Miller (SGC GOOD 30), and Honus Wagner (HOF, SGC POOR 10; with rounded corners, creases, and ink on the reverse, but still bright and crisp, with an extremely bold blue background). Few caramel-card issues are as distinctive as E90-2 American Caramel Company cards. While closely related to the popular E90-1 American Caramel series, E90-2 is a separate set. The quality of the artworks which appear in E90-2 are among the most detailed of all caramel cards, and are far superior in quality at even a glance to that of most other caramel cards (including E90-1) and other card issues of the era. This is a very attractive group of four cards including Honus Wagner from one of the most highly regarded of all 1910-era candy issues. Total 4 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
