Lot # 123 (of 1512)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 E90-1 American Caramel Honus Wagner - Batting

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,800

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Exceptionally attractive medium-grade example of Hall of Famer Honus Wagner from this extremely popular candy-card issue. The card is bright and crisp, with incredibly vibrant colors, even wear on the corners, and centering slightly to the right. The slightly out-of-focus registration on this bright, crisp card is a natural printing flaw as made. The text on the back is well centered, with a very tiny .25-inch crease visible near the center of the right edge. The E90-1 American Caramel set has two different poses of Honus Wagner (batting and throwing). This same batting pose was also used for E92 Dockman & Sons and other related candy-card issues from the 1910 era. Caramel cards in general are rarely found in high grade. This is a magnificent example of Honus Wagner from one of prewar-card collecting's most desirable candy-card issues. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.

SOLD FOR $1,800
