This rare E102 "Set of 25" candy card features the legendary Honus Wagner in a classic batting pose. The manufacturer of E102 is unknown. The batting pose of Wagner on this card is identical to that found in several rare sets of the era including T216 Kotton Tobacco and E101 "Set of 50." This example offers outstanding centering, bold colors, and flawless registration, with even corner rounding and moderate creasing. Downgraded to SGC POOR 10 due to a small tear to the right edge. In 1909, Wagner led the league in every major batting category including batting average, on-base percentage, total bases, and RBIs. This is a very presentable example of one of Honus Wagner's most classic cards, issued when he was "King of the Diamond." Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
