Offered is a pair of sample cards from the exceptionally rare 1915 E106 American Caramel series, each graded and encapsulated by SGC (submitted by REA): Hal Chase/catching (VG 40) and Danny Murphy (EX 60). This 48-card set shares designs with several other closely related candy issues (Croft's Candy, Nadja Caramels, Dockman & Sons, etc.) from the same era. These cards have glossy surfaces, which are very susceptible to cracking. Caramel cards in general are much rarer than tobacco cards of the era. Because they were issued with caramels one card per package and sold to children (as opposed to being sold to adults with tobacco), they also tend to survive in a much lower grade. In addition to being issued a few years later than most caramel cards, E106 American Caramel Company cards are considerably rarer than most traditional "E" cards. This is an exceptionally attractive pair of sample cards from this extremely rare prewar issue. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
