Presented is a complete 20-card set of E76 American Caramel Prize Fighters. Condition is three Vg, nine Gd, and eight lesser. Keys: Corbett (Fr), Jeffries (marked back, otherwise Gd), Fitzsimmons (Pr), Sharkey (SGC GOOD 30), Sullivan (light glue residue on back, otherwise Vg-Ex), and Walcott (Fr). Distributed with American Caramel candy products, the E76 Prize Fighters series features only boxers and closely resembles two other issues (classified E75 and E77) which were also produced by the company around the same time. Compared to baseball cards of the era, these early boxing cards, which are at least as scarce, represent a particularly outstanding value. Caramel cards, of course, tend to be far rarer than their tobacco-card counterparts. This is an attractive set of one of the most classic boxing candy issues of the early twentieth century. Total: 20 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
