1909-1911 E90-1 American Caramel Complete Set Minus One (119 of 120); Number One Set on the PSA Registry!

Starting Bid - $10,000.00, Sold For - $87,000.00

Extremely impressive near-complete set (119 of 120) of E90-1 American Caramel, all graded and encapsulated by PSA. Included are all the many Hall of Famers, extremely rare cards, and variations that make this set one of the most challenging and difficult-to-complete of all caramel card sets. The only missing card is Joe Jackson. This set is rated as the number one set on the "PSA Set Registry" with an overall grade average of 3.72. (The weighted GPA , which gives a greater emphasis on higher valued cards, is 3.90). The E90-1 set has long been considered by collectors to be the most significant of all early candy card sets, just as the T206 White Border set is universally recognized as the most important and popular 1910-era tobacco card set. This complete set (less one card) has been very carefully assembled by an extremely dedicated collector over a period of many years, and represents a tremendous collecting achievement. The PSA grading report is as follows: One NM 7: Tannehill - Chicago AL (one graded at this level with none higher). Sixteen EX-MT 6: Bush (one graded at this level with only one higher), E. Collins (none graded higher), Crawford (none graded higher), Criger (one graded at this level with only one higher), Howell - wind up (one graded at this level with only one higher), Howell - follow through (none graded higher), Isbell, Joss - port.

Thirty EX 5: Bailey (none graded higher), Bender, Bransfield - P on shirt (one graded higher), Bresnahan (one graded higher), Brown - Chi.

Three PR-FR 1: Dougherty, Keeler - red, Wagner - throwing. As referenced throughout the condition composite, many of these cards are the highest or second-highest graded examples in the PSA Population Report. The consignor has invested years in assembling and upgrading this set. The new owner will have to fill in only the rare Joe Jackson to complete this extraordinary E90-1 American Caramel set. Total 119 cards. Reserve $10,000. Estimate $20,000+. SOLD FOR $87,000.00
