1909 E92 Nadja Caramels Nap Lajoie
Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $940.00
Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. This rare Nadja Caramels issue from 1909 shares designs with several other closely related candy issues (Croft's Candy, Dockman & Sons, etc.) from the same era. The offered example of Hall of Famer Nap Lajoie is an attractive mid-grade example. Bright and crisp, with vibrant color, clean reverse, and centered towards the top right with a slight diamond cut. Caramel cards in general are much rarer than tobacco cards of the era. Because they were issued with caramels one card per package and sold to children (as opposed to being sold to adults with tobacco), they also tend to survive in a much lower grade. This is a strong Vg-Ex example of the legendary Nap Lajoie from this rare, early twentieth-century candy issue. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $940.00
