Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. This is the only example graded at this level by SGC with just four cards graded higher. Spectacular high-grade example of Hall of Famer Sam Crawford from the E95 Philadelphia Caramel series, one of the key cards from this rare and classic 1910-era candy set. This is a particularly strong example with tremendous eye-appeal. Bright and clean, both front and back, with brilliant colors, just a hint of even wear to the corners (a bit more to the upper left), and centered toward the bottom. The reverse is virtually flawless, with a very sharply printed checklist for the set. This card would be in magnificent condition for any card issued in 1909, but is all the more so 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 an outstanding high-grade example from one of the most popular and colorful of all “E” card issues, and one that would be a highlight in any extremely high quality classic, Hall of Fame, E95, or Sam Crawford card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
