1909 E101 Anonymous "Set of 50" PSA and SGC Collection (28)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,880

Substantial collection of twenty-eight E101 Anonymous “Set of 50” cards (27 different of the 50 in the set plus one duplicate), highlighted by three Hall of Famers, including Cy Young. The manufacturer of this 50-card set is unknown. The fronts are identical in design to the E92 related issues. As is the case with most 1910-era tobacco and “E” card issues, E101 cards each measure approximately 1.5 x 2.75 inches. Fourteen cards range in grade from Gd to Ex-Mt, and fourteen cards are lesser. All twenty-eight cards from the group have been graded and encapsulated by PSA (14 cards) or SGC (14 cards, unless otherwise noted): The PSA grades are as follows: One EX-MT 6: Knight. One VG-EX 4: Schlei. Two VG 3: Doolan and O'Hara. One GOOD 2: Davis. Eight PR-FR 1: Bergen, Casey, Devlin, Doyle (bat), Jacklitsch, Knabe, Smith (Schmidt), and Zimmerman. One Authentic: Donovan (trimmed). The SGC grades are as follows: One VG/EX 50: Shean. Five VG 40: Bridwell (BVG VG 3), Dooin, Johnny Evers (HOF), Knight, and Miller (fielding). Three GOOD 30: Doyle (throwing), Murphy, and Schmidt (BVG G-VG 2.5). One FAIR 20: Joe Tinker (HOF). Four POOR 10: Gibson (BVG PR 1), Hartsel, Seigle, and Cy Young (HOF). This is a very attractive mixed-grade collection with most cards appearing better than their technically accurate PSA- and SGC-assigned grades. Caramel cards, because they were issued with candy, one card per package, did not easily escape damage or hold up well to wear over the years. This is a very rarely offered large group representing just over 50% of a complete set of E101s, one of the most popular, elusive, and colorful of all “E” card issues. Total: 28 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $1,880
