1909 E92 Dockman & Sons Honus Wagner - Throwing
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,800
Graded VG 40 by SGC. The rare Dockman & Sons caramel issue from 1909 shares designs with several other closely related candy issues (Croft's Candy, Nadja Caramels, etc.) from the same era. The offered card of Hall of Famer Honus Wagner (throwing pose) is a very attractive example. Vibrant colors, even rounding to the corners, no creases or wrinkles, and centered very slightly to the left. The reverse is clean and boldly printed. Caramel cards in general are much rarer than tobacco cards of the era. Because they were issued with caramels one card per package and sold to children (as opposed to being sold to adults with tobacco), they tend to survive in a much lower grade. This is a very pleasing Vg example of the legendary Honus Wagner from this rare, early twentieth-century candy issue. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,800
