Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. This is the ONLY example graded at this level by PSA with just three higher. Striking high-grade example of Chicago Cubs Hall of Famer Joe Tinker from the 1909 E92 Croft's Candy set, with advertising for "Croft's & Allen Candy" of Philadelphia on the reverse. The same designs were also issued with advertising on the reverse for Croft's Swiss Milk Cocoa. It appears that both varieties of these cards were issued by the Croft & Allen Co. of Philadelphia to be handed out as advertising items to promote its candy and cocoa. The offered example has a flawless image set against a bold red background. Centered to the right, with four strong corners displaying light touches of wear, and a few stray print marks visible on his cap and the left border. The reverse is perfectly clean with no stains. This is a very attractive high-grade sample card of Joe Tinker, one of the key Hall of Famers from this rare set. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
