Graded EX 60 by SGC. One of only two examples graded at this level by SGC, with just one card graded higher (EX+ 70). Bright and clean, both front and back, with vibrant colors, four square corners, no creases or caramel stains, and centered to the right (approximately 80/20 L/R). The natural slight diamond cut and the centering to the right is solely responsible for this gem not grading even higher. This classic 1910-era Honus Wagner card is in extraordinary condition, all the more so for a caramel card, which because they were issued with candy, one card per package, tend to survive in lesser condition than their more common tobacco-card counterparts. This is a tremendous high-grade example of the rarer throwing pose of the legendary Honus Wagner from the premier ā€œEā€ card issue. (Interesting provenance note: Our consignor originally had a total of four E90-1 Wagners but sold the other two cards at REA in 2011. The last two cards each appear as a separate lot in this auction.) The SMR value for a PSA EX 5 is $3,850. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500+. SOLD FOR $4,444
