1910 E222 A. W. H. Caramels (Virginia League) Pat McCauley - Highest Graded!
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,600
Graded GOOD+ 35 by SGC (submitted by REA). Outstanding sample card from one of the rarest of all "E" card sets, catalogued E222, issued in 1910 by the A. W. H. Caramel Company, featuring players from the Virginia League. To date, only sixteen examples from the set have been graded by SGC or PSA combined. The cards measure 1.5 x 2.75 inches and picture a player portrait that is tinted red, black, brown, or blue and white. Presented is a red-and-white sample card of Pat McCauley from the 1910 Lynchburg Shoemakers of the Virginia League. This card is all the more interesting in that the pose of McCauley is the very same as that which appears on his T206 baseball card. For A. W. H. Caramel cards (which are not only extremely rare but are usually in very low grade), this is a particularly strong example. Well centered, with even wear on the corners and a very light, unobtrusive surface crease in the center of the card. This is only the fourth E222 example we have offered in more than a decade and the first since 2012. This is an extremely attractive, ideal sample card from one of the rarest of all 1910-era card sets. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+++. SOLD FOR $3,600
