1910 E96 Philadelphia Caramel Frank "Home Run" Baker
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $720
Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Hall of Famer Frank "Home Run" Baker from the E96 Philadelphia Caramel series. E96 cards are very similar in design to their E95 counterparts and can most easily be distinguished by the attractive red-printed checklist of the complete set on the reverse of each card. They were issued on fairly thin stock, which did not easily escape damage or wear well over the years. The artwork featured on E96 cards is unique to the set. This card displays a bold purple background and a perfect surface with no creases. Even wear to the four corners and outstanding centering (very slightly to the right). The reverse features a very boldly printed checklist for the set. Because they were issued with candy, one card per package, caramel cards tend to survive in lesser condition than their more common tobacco-card counterparts. This is an extremely attractive example of one of Baker’s most striking cards from one of the most popular and colorful of all “E” card issues. SOLD FOR $720
