Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none graded higher by either PSA or SGC! Superb high-grade sample card of Donie Bush of the Detroit Tigers from the exceptionally rare 1915 E106 American Caramel issue, which shares designs with several other closely related candy issues (Croft's Candy, Nadja Caramels, Dockman & Sons, etc.) from the same era. These cards have glossy surfaces, which are very susceptible to cracking. The offered example is bright and crisp, with four strong corners (a little more wear on the lower right), vibrant colors, no creases, and outstanding centering. The reverse has bold text and a light caramel stain in the upper left corner. Caramel cards in general are much rarer than tobacco cards of the era. Because they were issued with caramels one card per package and sold to children (as opposed to being sold to adults with tobacco), they also tend to survive in a much lower grade. In addition to being issued a few years later than most caramel cards, E106 American Caramel Company cards are considerably rarer than most traditional "E" cards. This is an exceptional high-grade sample card from this extremely rare prewar issue. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+.
