1910 E104-3 Nadja Caramels Sherry Magee

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,200

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Attractive midgrade example of Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Sherry Magee from the E104-3 Nadja Caramels set, one of the most distinctive, unusual, and important rarities of all 1910-era caramel-card issues. These cards are often confused with similarly designed "E" card and related sets (especially E104-1 and E104-2), but are distinct, featuring designs that are unique to this set, and therefore have an enormous significance to 1910-era cards and caramel cards in general that is often overlooked by collectors, probably in large part because all cards from this set are so incredibly rare. To date, thirty-six different subjects are known, featuring players from five different teams (mostly Tigers, Phillies, and Giants players, but one Cleveland player and two Cardinals are also known). The offered example of Magee presents extremely well despite its modest assigned grade. Bold colors, crisp image, outstanding centering, and even, natural wear to the four corners (slightly more in the upper right). The blank reverse displays light discoloration along the top and right perimeter. An extremely attractive sample of a significant caramel-card rarity.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,200
