1909 E101 Anonymous "Set of 50" Honus Wagner (Throwing)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,600

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC (submitted by REA). This extremely rare E101 "Set of 50" candy card features the legendary Honus Wagner in a throwing pose. The manufacturer of E101 is unknown. The throwing pose of Wagner on this card is identical to that found in several rare sets of the era, including T216 Kotton Tobacco and E102 "Set of 25." The back simply reads "This card is one of a set of 50 Base Ball Players - Prominent Members of National and American Leagues." In 1909, Wagner led the league in every major batting category including batting average, on-base percentage, total bases, and RBIs. The offered card is in extremely high-grade for the issue and presents at a much superior level than suggested by its technical grade. Brilliant colors, flawless registration, perfect centering, and light, even wear at the corners. Clean and boldly printed reverse. This is an extremely attractive example of one of Honus Wagner's most classic cards, issued at the peak of his career. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,600
