Very presentable trio of modestly-graded 1910-era Caramel cards, all featuring Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. Each card is graded and encapsulated by GAI. 1) 1909-1911 E90-1 American Caramel (GOOD 2). Crisp and clean, with honest corner rounding, centering toward the right, and a slightly tilted factory cut. Downgraded for a couple small scrapes in the orange background. 2) 1910 E98 “Set of 30” (POOR 1). Presenting as Fair on the front, a mostly-missing back accounts for the assigned grade. 3) 1910 E93 Standard Caramel (POOR 1). Presentable and well centered, with creasing only in the lower left portion, this example has been downgraded for paper loss on the reverse. These examples provide an excellent opportunity to acquire presentable yet relatively affordable alternatives to far more expensive higher-grade examples of these classic Ty Cobb cards. Total: 3 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
