1909 E92 Croft's Candy SGC-Graded Collection (22) Including Honus Wagner
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $5,581
Collection of twenty-two different E92 Croft’s Candy cards highlighted by eight Hall of Famers, including Honus Wagner, Christy Mathewson, and Cy Young. Cards from the E92 set were issued with four different advertising reverses (Dockman Gum, Nadja Caramels, Croft's Swiss Milk Cocoa, and Croft's Candy). This is a very sizable group for this issue, all with Croft's Candy advertising backs. Each card has been graded and encapsulated by SGC. The SGC condition report is as follows: Two VG/EX 50: Gibson and Hartsel. Four VG 40: Chief Bender - striped hat (HOF, rare blue back), Knight, Murphy, and Smith. Eight GOOD 30: Devlin, Donovan, Lobert (rare blue back), Schaefer, Shean, Joe Tinker (HOF), Honus Wagner - throwing (HOF), and Zimmerman. Five FAIR 20: Bridwell, Eddie Collins (HOF), John McGraw (HOF), Schmidt, and Cy Young (HOF, rare blue back). Three POOR 10: Bescher (rare blue back), Frank Chance (HOF), and Christy Mathewson (HOF). A very attractive and consistently graded collection of these scarce caramel cards, which could serve as the foundation for the assembly of a very impressive E92 set. While it would be almost hard to imagine that the entire set of all fifty cards could be assembled with matching Croft's Candy advertising backs, with patience perhaps it is possible, and this would certainly be a great start. Total: 22 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000.
