1910 E93 Standard Caramel Complete Set (30)
Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $14,950.00
Rarely seen complete set of E93. This 30-card set was issued in 1910 by the Standard Caramel Co. of Lancaster, PA. This set is closely related to several other candy sets from the era which share the same format and, in many cases, the same player image. Like most 1910-era tobacco and "E" card issues, E93 Standard Caramel Company cards each measure approximately 1.5 x 2.75 inches. The set is comprised almost exclusively of Hall of Famers and stars. We have selected eight cards from the set to be graded and encapsulated by PSA: PSA NM 7: Wiltse. PSA EX-MT 6: Addie Joss, Nap Lajoie, and Christy Mathewson. PSA EX 5: Ty Cobb, Gibson, and Cy Young. PSA VG 3: Honus Wagner. The remaining 22 cards grade as follows: 6 Ex-Mt (including Bender, Jennings, Plank, and Waddell), 6 Ex (Brown, Chance, Clarke, and Tinker with slight diamond cut), 8 Vg-Ex (including Chase, Collins, Evers with diamond cut, Griffith, Joss), 1 Vg (Jones), 1 lesser (McGraw appears Ex but has a slight trim to the bottom border). This set is in exceptionally fine condition, especially for caramel cards, which because they were issued with candy, one card per package, tend to survive in lesser condition than their more common tobacco card counterparts. A magnificent and rarely seen complete set of E93 Standard Caramel, one of the most popular and colorful of all "E" card issues. Total 30 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $5,000/$8,000. SOLD FOR $14,950.00
