Collection of four high-quality Hall of Famers from the 1909 E95 Philadelphia Caramel set. All four cards have each been graded and encapsulated by PSA. 1) Chief Bender (EX 5; bright and clean, both front and back, with particularly bold colors, centered slightly to the bottom (65/35 T/B), and even wear to the corners). 2) Frank Chance (VG-EX 4; striking image set against a vibrant green background, even wear to the corners, a couple light creases, and a slight diamond cut). 3) Sam Crawford (VG-EX 4; well centered with bright colors, even wear on the corners, a crease in the upper right, and a surface abrasion on the right border). 4) Eddie Plank (VG-EX 4; bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, even wear to the corners, no creases, and a minor surface abrasion on the reverse near the lower left corner). 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 ā€œEā€ card issues. The designs used in E95 are unique to the set. This is a very attractive group of mid-grade Hall of Famers from one of the era's most popular sets. The equivalent SMR value for the assigned grades is $2,370. Total: 4 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,500+. SOLD FOR $2,252
