1910 E90-2 American Caramel Complete SGC Graded Set (11)

Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $8,225.00

Complete set of 1910 E90-2 American Caramel Pittsburgh Pirates. All eleven cards in the set have been graded and encapsulated by SGC. These extremely distinctive and rare "E" cards feature members of the World Champion 1909 Pittsburgh Pirates. The key card in the set is Honus Wagner The example in this set is low-grade but is still a very nice looking card. This is one of Wagner's rarest and most striking cards, and is especially popular as it features a portrait image very similar to that which appears on his famous T206 card. This set also includes a particularly strong example of Hall of Famer Fred Clarke. This is an extremely attractive set with cards ranging in grade from SGC POOR 10 to SGC VG/EX 50. Almost all have exceptional eye appeal and many appear stronger than their technically accurate assigned grades. The SGC condition report is as follows: Two VG-EX 50: Fred Clarke (HOF, bright and crisp, with a virtually flawless image set against a striking red background, no creases) and Ham Hyatt. Four GOOD 30: Babe Adams, George Gibson, Nick Maddox, and Owen Wilson. Two FAIR 20: Tommy Leach and Sam Leever. Three POOR 10: Dots Miller, Deacon Phillipe (this is the one weak card visually compared to the other cards), and Honus Wagner (HOF, bright, crisp, and clean, with perfect colors, and an extremely bold blue background. The card has been downgraded due to creases on the left portion of the card, and paper loss on the reverse). Few caramel-card issues are as distinctive as E90-2 American Caramel Company cards. While closely related to the popular E90-1 American Caramel series, E90-2 is actually a separate set. The artwork of E90-2s is among the most detailed of all caramel cards, and far superior in quality at even a glance to that of most other caramel cards (including E90-1) and other card issues of the era. Though the cards in this set vary in grade, several cards are particularly strong, and most of even the lowest-graded examples have tremendous eye-appeal. Total 11 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $8,225.00
