1910 E98 Anonymous "Set of 30" Christy Mathewson

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $960

Graded FR 1.5 by PSA. Presented is an E98 "Set of 30" candy card featuring Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson, one of the key cards from this popular 1910-era issue. The manufacturer of E98 is unknown. Cards from this set may be easily confused with other caramel-card sets of the era (E93 and E94 specifically); this is an entirely different set even though it uses many of the same subjects and poses. Despite its modest assigned grade due to scattered creasing, this is an attractive card, with a deep red background, flawless registration, and even wear to the four corners. The back features the checklist for the set in crisp, bold brown print. Caramel cards in general are much rarer than tobacco cards of the era. This is an outstanding example of the legendary Christy Mathewson from this early twentieth-century candy issue. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $960
