1909 to 1913 E254 and E270 Colgan's Chips SGC-Graded Collection (4) - All Four Types Including Square Proof and Red Border!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $480

Superb sample collection of four different Colgan's Chips cards, one from each of the different series produced by the company. Among the most unique and distinctive cards ever produced, Colgan's Chips cards are actually circular (1-7/16 inches in diameter) and were issued as inserts with Colgan's Chips ("The Gum That's Round") in the round gum tins. Each of the four cards offered here is graded and encapsulated by SGC. This collection consists of the following: 1) 1909 E254 Colgan's Chips "Square Proof": Frank Baker (HOF, POOR 10). This unusual issue is obviously related to Colgan's Chips, and they do feature the same portraits as are found on E254 Colgan's Chips, but little else is known with certainty about them. It is our belief that these are a candy issue unto themselves, which was obviously produced in connection with the Colgan's set, but probably issued by a different company. 2) 1909-1911 E254 Colgan's Chips: Frank Baker (HOF, NM 84). 3) 1912 E270 Colgan's Chips "Red Borders": Walker (VG 40). Similar in design and borrowing the same images as E254 "Stars of the Diamond" series, the E270 "Red Borders" set is far rarer than its E254 counterparts, and very distinctive, with its bright red border surrounding the image. 4) 1912-1913 E270-2 Colgan's Chips "Tin Tops": George McBride (GOOD 30). E270-2 cards were inserted with Colgan's Violet or Mint Chips, as noted on the backs, which easily distinguishes these cards from their more common E254 counterparts. This is an extremely attractive collection of sample cards from the four Colgan's Chips issues, highlighted by two examples of Hall of Famer Frank Baker. Total: 4 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $480
