1910 E90-2 American Caramel Honus Wagner

Starting Bid - $1,500.00, Sold For - $6,380.00

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Stunning example of this very scarce and popular card which is so similar in appearance to the famous T206 Wagner and dates from the same era. Honus did not want to encourage youngsters to smoke but had no problem with promoting candy. The "Flying Dutchman" is the key card in the 1910 E90-2 American Caramel set. Rarely does an example of this classic card have such extraordinary eye appeal. This is a gorgeous card. Very well centered, with outstanding color, perfect registration, an extremely bold blue background. The card has light, even corner wear and some very faint toning on the reverse, and was apparently downgraded by SGC due to the most insignificant paper wrinkle above Wagner's left shoulder and an extremely tiny pinpoint chip of paper loss above his right shoulder. We grade this card Vg-Ex, with a substantially stronger eye-appeal. This is a sensational mid-grade example of one of prewar card collecting's most desirable and classic cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000/$5,000. SOLD FOR $6,380.00
