Extremely attractive pair of caramel cards featuring legendary Hall of Famers Ty Cobb and Honus Wagner. Each card is encapsulated as "Authentic" by PSA due to evidence of trimming (submitted by REA). These cards were purchased by our consignor approximately twenty years ago, in the days prior to the rise in popularity of professional grading. At the time both were described as Excellent or better and he kept them as part of his advanced prewar-card collection all these years until consigning to this auction. 1) 1917 E135 Collins-McCarthy #180 Hans Wagner. The card measures full size (any trimming is extremely subtle), and the card may actually be cut from a sheet. Near-perfect centering with flawless registration, a crisp image, and strong corners. Both the top and bottom right corners display a light crease which would render the card VG (without respect to the trimming) despite an overall Excellent or better appearance. 2) 1922 E122 American Caramel Series of 80 Ty Cobb. Also full size (or even slightly oversize) and may originate from a sheet. Centered to the right with strong corners. Crisp and clean on front and back with a faint wrinkle on the reverse. Excellent appearance. This pair of caramel cards presents an outstanding collecting opportunity to acquire two key Hall of Famers at a fraction of the cost of numerically graded examples with similar outstanding eye-appeal. Total: 2 cards.Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $2,370
