1909 E101 Anonymous "Set of 50" Honus Wagner
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $4,112.50
Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. This extremely rare E101 "Set of 50" candy card features the legendary Honus Wagner in a batting pose. The manufacturer of E101 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 E102 "Set of 25." This is a very striking card. Bright and crisp, with bold colors, flawless registration, and even corner wear. Clean front and back (just a hint of soiling on reverse), with no creases, and perfectly centered. The back simply reads "This card is one of a set of 50 Base Ball Players - Prominent Members of National and American Leagues." In 1909, Wagner led the league in every major batting category including batting average, on-base percentage, total bases, and RBIs. This is an extremely attractive example of one of Honus Wagner's most classic cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $4,112.50
