1910 E96 Philadelphia Caramel Frank Baker

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $540

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Extremely attractive example of Hall of Famer Frank "Home Run" Baker from the E96 Philadelphia Caramel series. E96 cards are very similar in design to their E95 counterparts and can most easily be distinguished by the attractive red-printed checklist of the complete set on the reverse of each card. They were issued on fairly thin stock, which did not easily escape damage or wear well over the years. The artwork featured on E96 cards is unique to the set. This card is bright and crisp, with a bold purple background, just the slightest hint of even wear to the corners, and centering slightly to the bottom. A tiny, almost imperceptible surface wrinkle in the right border keeps this card from grading Ex. The reverse features a very boldly printed checklist for the set. This card is in outstanding condition, especially for a caramel card, which, because they were issued with candy, one card per package, tend to survive in lesser condition than their more common tobacco-card counterparts. This is a superb example of one of Baker’s most striking cards from one of the most popular and colorful of all “E” card issues, and one that would be a worthy addition to any high-quality classic Hall of Fame, E96, or sample-card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $540
