1909 E92-2 Croft's Candy SGC-Graded Collection (24) Including Ty Cobb and Christy Mathewson
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $9,480
Collection of twenty-one different (plus three back variations for a total of 24 cards) E92-2 Croft’s Candy cards highlighted by six Hall of Famers, including Ty Cobb and Christy Mathewson. 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 EX 60: Chief Bender - white cap (HOF) and Davis. Three VG/EX 50: Bridwell (rare blue back), Hartsel (rare blue back), and Murphy. Eleven VG 40: Chief Bender - striped cap (HOF), two Bescher (one with the rare blue back), Bridwell, Devlin, Donovan, Jacklitsch, Knight, Christy Mathewson (HOF), Schaefer, and Schmidt. Three GOOD 30: Dooin, Gibson, and Knabe. One FAIR 20: Dooin (rare blue back). Three POOR 10: Ty Cobb (HOF), Eddie Collins (HOF), and Sam Crawford (extremely rare red back). One Authentic: Barry. 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 E92-2 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: 24 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000+. SOLD FOR $9,480
