Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. E95 Philadelphia Caramel of Hall of Fame pitcher Eddie Plank of the Philadelphia Athletics. This is an exceptional mid-grade example of one of Plank's most classic cards, downgraded from Ex due only to an extremely tiny border crease in the upper right corner. Plank is one of the keys to this scarce caramel-card set issued in 1909 by the Philadelphia Caramel Co. of Camden, New Jersey. This example is bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, even wear to the corners, a tiny crease on the bottom border, and a boldly printed checklist for the set on the back. We grade this card a bit more conservatively than PSA due to a spot of paper loss on the reverse. This card is all the more noteworthy as the image on this card is the same as that used to produce the rare Plank card in the T206 White Border series. This is an attractive medium-grade example of one of Plank's most striking cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
