1910 E125 American Caramel Die-cut Fred Clark (Clarke) - Highest Graded!
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $1,320
Presented is an extraordinary example of Pittsburgh Pirates Hall of Famer Fred Clarke from the 1910 E125 American Caramel Die-cut series. To the best of our knowledge, this is one of only two E125s of Fred Clarke known to exist. 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 Fred Clarke has survived complete, with all flaps intact, with stand-up flaps never even having been folded back. Bright and clean, both front and back, the card presents at a glance as Ex-Mt, though very close examination reveals a very tiny surface crease on his glove. The card has some areas of light age toning and an extremely minor surface flake at the edge by Clarke's left leg. The reverse is bright and perfectly clean. Graded VG 40 by SGC. We grade this card considerably stronger, at Vg-Ex/Ex condition. This is a magnificent high-grade E125 American Caramel Die-cut of Hall of Famer Fred Clarke and a worthy sample card from this rare and distinctive 1910-era baseball die-cut caramel-card set. SOLD FOR $1,320
