1910 E105 Mello-Mint Bob Bescher

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $600

Graded GAI EX-MT+ 6.5 by GAI. High-grade sample card of 1910 E105 Mello-Mint featuring Bob Bescher of Cincinnati. The E105 Mello-Mint set is one of the rarest of all 1910-era candy-card issues. Because Mello-Mints are printed on such thin stock, they are usually found crinkled or creased. This is a particularly striking and colorful card, making this an ideal subject for a high-grade sample. The offered card has four strong corners, outstanding centering, and no creases. The Mello-Mint advertisement on the back is boldly printed in green against an off-white background. E105s tend to survive in very modest condition, which makes this sample all the more noteworthy. This is an exceptional high-grade sample from one of prewar-card collecting's most condition-sensitive candy-card issues. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $600
