1909 E92 Dockman & Sons Cy Young

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

Graded VG 40 by SGC. A rare caramel issue from 1909, Dockman & Sons shares a similar design with several other related candy issues (Croft's Candy, Nadja Caramels, etc.) from the same era. The offered example of Cleveland Naps Hall of Fame pitcher Cy Young has a brilliant image set against a bright orange background, evenly rounded corners, and is centered slightly to the left. The back is also bright and clean, with bold black text. 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 also tend to survive in a much lower grade. This is an exceptional example of the legendary Cy Young from this rare, early twentieth-century candy issue. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,800
