1910 E125 American Caramel Die-cut Babe Adams

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $600

Graded VG 40 by SGC. High-grade example of Babe Adams from the E125 American Caramel series. This card is exceptionally strong for this condition-sensitive issue! 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, such as the offered card, all the rarer. This E125 Babe Adams has survived complete. It clearly has a far stronger appearance than even suggested by its SGC-assigned grade and has been downgraded to VG due to a few tiny, insignificant surface chips on front. The card otherwise presents with a very strong Excellent appearance. The reverse of the card, which features a complete checklist of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the set and advertising for American Caramels, is bright and clean with only a small, unobtrusive area of toning at the bottom. This is a magnificent example in outstanding high grade from one of the rarest and most condition-sensitive of all caramel-card issues. SOLD FOR $600
