1910 E90-2 American Caramel Complete SGC-Graded Set Including Honus Wagner (11)

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $4,147.50

Presented is a rarely offered complete set of 1910 E90-2 American Caramel Pirates, with nine graded by SGC and two by PSA. These extremely distinctive and rare "E" cards feature members of the World Champion 1909 Pittsburgh Pirates. The key card in the set is Honus Wagner. The example in this set is low-grade but it still has a very pleasing appearance. This is one of Wagner's rarest and most striking cards, and is especially popular as it features a portrait image very similar to that which appears on his famous T206 card. This set also includes a particularly strong example of Hall of Famer Fred Clarke. This is an extremely attractive mid-grade set with cards ranging in grade from SGC POOR 10 to SGC VG/EX 50. Almost all have exceptional eye-appeal and many appear much stronger than their technically accurate assigned grades. The condition report is as follows: One VG/EX 50: Ham Hyatt. Three VG 40: George Gibson (PSA VG 3), Tommy Leach, and Deacon Phillippe. Four GOOD 30: Babe Adams, Fred Clarke (HOF, bright and presentable front, downgraded due to reverse writing), Nick Maddox, and Owen Wilson. One FAIR 20: Sam Leever. Two POOR 10: Dots Miller and Honus Wagner (HOF, PSA 1 [MC]; miscut along the bottom edge, heavily rounded corners, and several creases, but still bright and crisp, with an extremely bold blue background). Few caramel-card issues are as distinctive as E90-2 American Caramel Company cards. While closely related to the popular E90-1 American Caramel series, E90-2 is a separate set. All feature portraits of Pittsburgh Pirates players. The artworks which appear in E90-2 are among the most detailed of all caramel cards, and are far superior in quality at even a glance to that of most other caramel cards (including E90-1) and other card issues of the era. Though the cards in this set vary in grade, several cards are particularly strong, and most of even the lowest-graded examples have tremendous eye-appeal. Total: 11 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $4,147.50
