Extremely attractive pair of 1909 E95 Philadelphia Caramel cards featuring legendary Hall of Famers Ty Cobb and Honus Wagner. The 25-card E95 set was issued in 1909 by the Philadelphia Caramel Co. of Camden, New Jersey. This set is of even greater significance than many other caramel-card issues in that the E95 artwork was not reissued by other manufacturers, a widespread practice with other “E” card issues. The designs used in E95 are unique to the set. Each card is graded and encapsulated by PSA. 1) Ty Cobb (PR 1, bright and crisp image, with extremely heavy corner wear and multiple creases). 2) Honus Wagner (PR-FR 1, flawless registration, rounded corners, a few creases, and light staining on the left portion of the card). These examples provide an excellent opportunity to acquire presentable yet relatively affordable alternatives to far more expensive higher-grade examples of these classic cards. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
