1910 E125 American Caramel Die-cut Eddie Cicotte

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,560

Very attractive example of Black Sox star Eddie Cicotte from the E125 American Caramel series. E125s have always been held in the highest esteem by advanced collectors both for their extreme rarity, as well as for their very striking and unique design. They are so rare that the E125 set was not even known to exist until the 1960s. The fragile nature of all die-cut cards and the easily broken flaps at the base of E125s, which allow them to stand, make complete, high-grade examples all the rarer. This E125 Eddie Cicotte has survived complete and is one of the finest examples we have ever seen! The card presents with a strong Excellent or better appearance. It is bright and clean, with virtually no wear along the edges or near the flaps. Very close inspection reveals a tiny wrinkle near Cicotte's neck. The reverse of the card, which features a complete checklist of the Boston Red Sox in the set and advertising for American Caramels, is bright and clean. This is a magnificent example of one of Cicotte's rarest cards from one of the rarest and most condition-sensitive of all caramel-card issues. From the Dan Gantt Collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,560
