1910 E96 Philadelphia Caramel Complete Set (30)
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $3,480.00
Complete thirty card set of E96 Philadelphia Caramel. Ten cards range in grade from Vg to Vg-Ex (including Brown, Clarke, and Jennings); twenty cards range in grade from Fair to Good+ (including Baker, Lajoie, Mack, Marquard, and Tinker). While many caramel companies were satisfied with producing only a single set, Philadelphia Caramel followed up their twenty-five card 1909 entry with another thirty cards in 1910. The fact that the E96 card set was issued at all suggests that the E95 set had been a marketing success. The Philadelphia Caramel Company obviously made a conscious decision to not duplicate any players in their two card issues. Unfortunately for collectors, they had already used most of the game's biggest names in their first set, but were able to muster up an additional eight Hall of Famers for this set, including Connie Mack in one of his few card appearances. The cards are very similar in design to their E95 counterparts and can most easily be distinguished by the attractive red-printed checklist of the complete set on the reverse of each card. They were issued on fairly thin stock which did not easily escape damage or hold up well to wear over the years. Total 30 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $3,480.00
