1910 E125 American Caramel Die-cut Chief Bender

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $474

Encapsulated as Authentic by SGC. Hall of Famer Chief Bender from the E125 American Caramel series. E125s have always been held in the highest esteem by advanced collectors both for their extreme rarity as well as for their very striking and unique design. The fragile nature of all die-cut cards and the easily broken flaps at the base of E125s which allow them to stand, make complete, high-grade examples all the rarer. This E125 Chief Bender has survived for more than one hundred years with only a small piece of Bender's left hand and the bottom left flap missing. Scattered wrinkles are visible on the card front along with creasing in the head and along the arm and small areas of surface wear at the base. The reverse, which features a complete checklist of the Philadelphia Athletics in the set and advertising for American Caramels, is bright and clean with only evidence of the aforementioned creases visible. Despite the various technical flaws, the card displays well. One of Bender's rarest cards from one of the rarest and most condition-sensitive of all caramel-card issues. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $474
