Collection of five E125 American Caramel Die-cuts, each representing a player from the Boston Red Sox (five out of nine for a complete team subset), as follows: Bill Carrigan (light wrinkle on his right leg, otherwise Ex-Mt), Harry Lord (several areas of surface paper loss on the front, otherwise Vg-Ex), Amby McConnell (surface crease visible on the reverse, otherwise Ex-Mt), Harry Niles (surface wrinkle visible from the back on his right arm, otherwise Ex), and Heinie Wagner (Ex). Each of the five cards is fully intact with all tabs and presents extremely well despite the modest technical grade. Distributed by the American Caramel Co. circa 1910, this set of die-cuts is so rare that it was not even catalogued until the late 1960s. They were apparently issued one card per box of caramels, and vary slightly in size from card to card, depending on the player’s pose. Most are approximately 7 inches high and 4 inches wide. E125 American Caramel cards are designed with small moving parts, which fold back to allow players to stand. E125 American Caramel cards are noted for their outstanding display value and have always been held in the highest regard by serious collectors of 1910-era candy cards. This is a very attractive group of five of these distinctive early candy-card rarities. From the Dan Gantt Collection. Total: 5 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++.
