Similar in appearance to the E254 Colgan's Chips issue, these disc-like cards (which measure 1-7/16 inches in diameter) were issued in 1910 with Ju-Ju Drum candy and present a black-and-white player image on front with company advertising on the reverse. This example, featuring Hall of Famer Chief Bender, is crisp and clean, with a boldly printed reverse and outstanding centering. Two creases and a bit of paper loss on the reverse account for the modestly assigned grade of FAIR 20 by SGC. This is an attractive lower-grade example which would be a superb addition to any prewar, Hall of Fame, or sample-card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
