Presented is an outstanding collection of seven 1910 E104-1 Nadja Caramel Athletics, comprised of six different of the eighteen cards in the set, all graded by SGC (submitted by REA), including Hall of Famers Eddie Collins and Eddie Plank (two). E104-1 Nadja Caramels is among the rarest of all twentieth-century caramel issues. Produced to commemorate the Athletics’ 1910 Championship season, the 18-card set features Philadelphia Athletics exclusively. The cards measure 1-1/2 x 2-5/8 inches, which is the standard size for tobacco issues. They are nearly identical to D359 Rochester/Williams Baking, and another related set of legendary rarity, T208 Fireside Tobacco. This collection consists of the following: Barry (Authentic), Collins (POOR 10), Davis (Authentic), Oldring (Authentic), two Plank (Authentic and POOR 10), and Thomas. Each card grades modestly due to advanced creasing in most cases (paper loss on the front of one Plank); the Authentic cards appear to measure slightly small or exhibit a hand cut. All seven cards are the plain portrait variation (each player can also be found with an overprint of a white elephant and the notation “World’s Champions 1910” on front) with blank backs (also issued with Nadja ad). It is very rare to find a sizable collection of these extremely rare and distinctive "E" cards featuring members of the World Champion 1910 Philadelphia Athletics. Total: 7 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
