Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Rare caramel issue from 1909, the Dockman & Sons set shares designs with several other closely related candy issues (Croft's Candy, Nadja Caramels, etc.) from the same era. The offered example of Hall of Famer Honus Wagner (batting pose) is in exceptionally high grade. It is easy to see why this is recognized as one of the most striking and classic of all Wagner cards. This is a gorgeous card! Bright and clean, with perfect registration, light, even wear on the corners, vibrant colors, and well centered slightly to the right. The back is also bright and clean, with very bold text. A very light surface crease in the lower left corner (extremely minor, very difficult to see) appears to be the only factor keeping this extremely impressive card from receiving a grade of Excellent. Caramel cards are rarely found in high grade. This is an extraordinary example of the legendary Honus Wagner from this rare, early twentieth-century candy issue. Strong Vg-Ex condition bordering on Excellent. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500+. SOLD FOR $3,525
