Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level by SGC with none higher! High-grade sample card of 1910 E105 Mello-Mint featuring Topsy Hartsel of the Philadelphia Athletics. The E105 Mello-Mint set is one of the rarest of all 1910-era candy-card issues. Because Mello-Mints are printed on such thin stock, they are usually found crinkled or creased. The offered card has four strong corners, a single surface crease near the upper left corner, and centering to the left. The Mello-Mint advertisement on the back is boldly printed in green against an off-white background. E105s tend to survive in very modest condition, which makes this sample all the more noteworthy. This is an extremely high grade sample from one of prewar-card collecting's most condition-sensitive candy-card issues. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
