Graded VG 40 by SGC. Very attractive medium-grade example of Hall of Famer Nap Lajoie from this extremely rare candy issue. Because Mello-Mints are printed on such thin stock, they are usually found crinkled or heavily creased. This is an extremely crisp example of one of the key Hall of Famers in the set. The card is bright and clean, both front and back, with deep, bright colors, light wear at the corners, and is crease-free with the exception of a tiny surface wrinkle visible mostly from the reverse. Centered to the top left. The text of the Mello-Mint advertisement on the back is boldly printed in green. Caramel cards in general, of course, are rarely found in high grade, and this is especially so with Mello-Mints. This is an extremely attractive Mello-Mint example of the legendary Nap Lajoie from one of prewar-card collecting's most condition-sensitive candy-card issues. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
