1910 E90-3 American Caramel Near-Complete SGC-Graded Set (18 of 20)
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $5,333
Presented is an extremely rare near-complete set of 1910 E90-3 American Caramel: eighteen different of the twenty cards in the set (missing only Cole and Payne for completion), all graded by SGC (except one PSA). The E90-3 American Caramel set is actually even rarer than the E90-1 series (except for the key rare cards in the set) or the E90-2 Pittsburgh series cards. This is truly a set unto itself, slightly different in design from the other American Caramel cards and featuring only Cubs and White Sox players, including Hall of Famers Mordecai Brown, Frank Chance, Johnny Evers, Joe Tinker, and Ed Walsh, as well as future "Black Sox" star Chic Gandil. We think this set is very much overlooked simply because the set is rare and the prefix of its catalog designation (E90) is shared by E90-1 and E90-2, both of which sets are actively collected and get all the attention. In forty years of specializing in vintage cards, we have never had a complete set of E90-3 to offer. We can't say that about too many early sets. This is a very substantial collection of these extremely distinctive and rare "E" cards, comprised of eighteen of the twenty cards in the set. SGC grading composite: Three VG/EX 50: Mordecai Brown (HOF), Dougherty, and Purtell (Frank Nagy Collection). Six VG 40: Johnny Evers (HOF), Hofman, Overall, Schulte, Sheckard, and Joe Tinker (HOF, green background, PSA VG 3). Six GOOD 30: Blackburne, Frank Chance (HOF), Chick Gandil (Black Sox), Hahn, Smith, and Steinfeldt. One FAIR 20: Ed Walsh (HOF). Two POOR 10: Archer (Lionel Carter Collection) and Zeider. A rare opportunity to acquire a near-complete set of eighteen different cards (out of twenty in the set) of one of the rarest of all 1910-era candy issues. Total: 18 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000+. SOLD FOR $5,333
