Graded VG 3 by PSA. Rare caramel issue from 1909, the Dockman & Sons set shares designs with several other closely related candy issues (Croft's Candy, Nadja Caramels, etc.) from the same era. The offered example of Hall of Famer Honus Wagner (batting pose) is in exceptionally high grade. It is easy to see why this is recognized as one of the most striking and classic of all Wagner cards. Bright and clean, with outstanding registration, vibrant colors, and well centered with a natural diamond cut. Honest corner wear, a few light surface wrinkles, and a miniscule spot of paper loss on Wagner's sleeve. The back is also bright and clean, with very bold text. This is a very attractive example of the legendary Honus Wagner from this rare, early twentieth-century candy issue. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000.
