Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! One of the legendary rarities of all candy cards, and long recognized as one of the key rarities of the E90-1 American Caramel candy card series in the early days of organized collecting, Mitchell, Cincinnati, was often referred to by collectors as the "Honus Wagner of E cards." Presented is an exceptional ultra high-grade example of this legendary rarity. Bright and clean, both front and back, with a brilliant yellow background, no caramel stains, light wear to the corners (a little more wear on the upper right), full borders, and centered to the right. The reverse has bold black print. This is an extraordinary high-grade example of this legendary key rarity from the most popular caramel-card set of the era. This card (and E90-1s in general) is rarely found in high grade. Today collectors recognize many cards as being of various degrees of rarity in the E90-1 set, but Mitchell, Cincinnati (along with the Joe Jackson rookie card, also from the same set), will always be the most famous key rarity of the classic E90-1 American Caramel set. The SMR value for the assigned grade is $10,000. From the Dan Gantt Collection. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+.
