Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. Presented is a very presentable lower-grade example of Hall of Famer Honus Wagner in a throwing pose from the very popular E93 Standard Caramel series. This 30-card set was issued in 1910 by the Standard Caramel Co. of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. This set is closely related to several other candy sets from the era which share the same format and, in many cases, the same player image. This example offers a bold red background and outstanding registration, with centering toward the right, minor soiling, honest rounding to the corners, and a pair of horizontal creases. A light scrape in the area of Wagner's face is mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy. This card is in very presentable condition, especially for a caramel card, which because they were issued with candy, one card per package, tend to survive in lesser condition than their more common tobacco-card counterparts. This is a very desirable example of the legendary Honus Wagner from one of the most popular and colorful of all “E” card issues. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
