Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. Very attractive lower-graded example of Hall of Famer Honus Wagner from this extremely popular candy-card issue. The card is bright and crisp, with incredibly vibrant colors, light wear on the corners, a heavy crease across the lower portion, 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 to the right, with a wet-sheet transfer of red ink on the top portion. 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 a very presentable example of Honus Wagner from one of prewar-card collecting's most desirable candy-card issues. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
