1910 E104-1 Nadja Caramels Connie Mack
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,185.00
Extremely rare 1910 E104-1 Nadja Caramels Connie Mack with "Swift" overprint on reverse. This magnificent example of key Hall of Famer Connie Mack from the extremely rare E104-1 Nadja Caramels series features a classic portrait image along with the "World's Champions" overprint on front. This card has been graded FAIR 20 by SGC but presents at a much higher level than suggested by the technically accurate grade, which is the highest allowable with ink on the reverse, per SGC policy. It presents at the VG level and would likely grade as such with a qualifier if reviewed by PSA. E104-1 Nadja Caramels are among the rarest of all twentieth-century caramel issues. Produced to commemorate the Athletics’ 1910 championship season, the 18-card set features Philadelphia Athletics exclusively. The cards measure 1-1/2 x 2-5/8 inches, which is the standard size for tobacco issues. They are nearly identical to D359 Rochester/Williams Baking, and another related set of legendary rarity, T208 Fireside Tobacco. The card is bright and clean, with no creases, even corner wear, centering very slightly towards the top, with a deep green background and crisp image. The blank back is clean except for the red ink stamp reading "Swift" along with a street address visible. This stamp is very common among cards from this issue and represents a specific retail store. The "Swift" establishment stamped these cards with its name and address for distribution with candy or just as promotional giveaways. This is an extremely striking, very attractive example of one of the rarest of all Connie Mack cards, worthy of the most advanced collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
