Graded VG 40 by SGC. Exceptionally attractive medium-grade example of Hall of Famer Honus Wagner from this extremely popular candy-card issue. The card is bright and crisp, with incredibly vibrant colors, even wear on the corners, a light wrinkle across the lower right corner, and centering slightly to the left. The slightly out-of-focus registration on this bright, crisp card is a natural printing flaw as made. The text on the back is centered slightly to the top, with a light wet-sheet transfer of red ink near the top border. The E90-1 American Caramel set has two different poses of Honus Wagner (batting and throwing). This same batting pose was also used for E92 Dockman & Sons and other related candy-card issues from the 1910 era. Caramel cards in general are rarely found in high grade. This is an outstanding example of Honus Wagner from one of prewar-card collecting's most desirable candy-card issues. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000++.
