1909 E95 Philadelphia Caramel Hooks Wiltse PSA EX-MT+ 6.5

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $600

Graded EX-MT+ 6.5 by PSA. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with just one higher out of fifty-seven cards evaluated by PSA to date. Beautiful high-grade card of Hooks Wiltse (New York Giants) from the classic E95 Philadelphia Caramel series. The E95 set was almost certainly inspired by the great success that tobacco companies were having with their cards. This set is of even greater significance in that the E95 artwork was not reissued by other manufacturers, a practice so widespread with other “E” card issues. The designs used in E95 are unique to the set. These cards have a very distinctive look to them and the artwork is definitely a cut above that of their rivals of the time. Due to the thin stock on which they are printed, E95 Philadelphia Caramel cards are rarely found in such high grade. In fact, less than three percent of the 1,614 E95s graded by PSA to date have ever graded higher than EX-MT+. Clean both front and back, with strong corners, brilliant colors, outstanding centering, and flawless registration. Boldly printed and well-centered checklist reverse. An exceptional high-grade example from this desirable prewar issue, which would make a significant addition to any world-class E95 set or sample-card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $600
