Graded EX 5 by PSA. Only two examples grade higher out of eighty-one evaluated by PSA to date. High-grade example of Chicago Cubs Hall of Famer Frank Chance in a portrait pose from the highly desirable E95 Philadelphia Caramel series. For a caramel card, PSA EX 5 is an impressive grade. Due to the thin stock on which E95s, in particular, are printed, and their method of issue, these cards are rarely found in high grade. Bright and clean, both front and back, with a vibrant green background, centering slightly to the bottom left, a hint of even wear to the corners, and a perfectly clean surface with particularly bold colors. The printing of the checklist on the back is bold and centered to the right. The designs used in E95 are particularly noted for their beauty and are unique to the set. This is an exceptional high-grade E95 example and one of Hall of Famer Frank Chance's most stunning cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
