Graded VG 40 by SGC. Extremely unusual E92 example features Hall of Famer Honus Wagner in a throwing pose. This card has a blank back. E92s are also known with the following advertising backs: Dockman & Sons, Croft's & Allen (blue and red printing), Croft's Cocoa, and Nadja Caramels. This is not a printer's scrap card. This card has a pronounced "diamond cut" and was therefore obviously cut and issued in exactly this manner. The card is bright and clean, both front and back, with with crisp colors, no creases, and honest corner wear. If not for the "diamond cut" this card would otherwise be in Vg-Ex condition. This is a very strong example of the legendary Honus Wagner from this rare, early twentieth-century candy issue. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
