1909-1911 E90-1 American Caramel Willie Keeler Throwing

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,440

Graded VG+ 3.5 by PSA. Presented is a magnificent example of one of the key rarities in the entire E90-1 American Caramel series (and of all caramel cards): the horizontal throwing pose of Hall of Famer Wee Willie Keeler. Reminiscent of Christy Mathewson in the 1914 and 1915 Cracker Jack sets, Keeler is a key Hall of Famer that has two poses in E90-1 set. The portrait pose is relatively common. The horizontal throwing pose is extremely rare. This card is a stunner! It is bright and clean, both front and back, with a bold red background, even wear to the corners, and no creases. This is a tremendous example of a key Hall of Famer rarity from the most popular caramel-card set of the era that would be at home in any world-class caramel card or Hall of Fame card collection. The SMR value for the assigned grade is $500 (no half grade values are available). We can't help but think that is low and simply does not take into account the extreme rarity of this card. Reserve $200. Estimate $400++. SOLD FOR $1,440
