1910 E125 American Caramel Die-cuts Pittsburgh Pirates Collection (3)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,440
Collection of three E125 American Caramel Die-cuts, each representing a player from the Pittsburgh Pirates and all graded and encapsulated by SGC: George Gibson (GOOD 30, only example graded at this level by SGC, with none higher), Dots Miller (GOOD 30, one of two examples graded at this level by SGC, with one higher), and Art Wilson (VG 40, one of two examples graded at this level by SGC, with one higher). Each of the three cards is fully intact with all tabs and presents extremely well despite the modest assigned grade. Distributed by the American Caramel Co. circa 1910, this set of die-cuts is so rare that it was not even catalogued until the late 1960s. They were apparently issued one card per box of caramels, and vary slightly in size from card to card, depending on the player’s pose. Most are approximately 7 inches high and 4 inches wide. E125 American Caramel cards are designed with small moving parts, which fold back to allow players to stand. E125 American Caramel cards are noted for their outstanding display value and have always been held in the highest regard by serious collectors of 1910-era candy cards. This is a very attractive group of three of these distinctive early candy-card rarities. Total: 3 cards. SOLD FOR $1,440
