Collection of nineteen different (of 50) E92 Croft’s Candy cards highlighted by five Hall of Famers, including Honus Wagner and both variations of Chief Bender. Cards from the E92 set were issued with four different advertising reverses (Dockman Gum, Nadja Caramels, Croft's Swiss Milk Cocoa, and Croft's Candy). This is a very sizable group for this issue, all with Croft's Candy advertising backs. Six cards are graded and encapsulated by SGC (all submitted by REA). The collection consists of the following: Barry (trimmed, miscut reverse, otherwise Vg-Ex+), Bender/stripped cap (HOF, SGC Authentic), Bender/white cap (HOF, SGC Authentic), Bergen (measures small, otherwise Ex), Bescher (trimmed bottom edge, otherwise Vg-Ex+), Casey (Vg-Ex+), Donovan (Vg-Ex), Dooin (95/5 L/R, otherwise Vg+), Doyle/with bat (100/0 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), Gibson (EX+ 70), Hartsel (100/0 L/R, otherwise Vg), Jennings (HOF, SGC EX 5), Kleinow (SGC Authentic), Knight (95/5 T/B, otherwise Ex+), McGraw (HOF, SGC Authentic) Miller/batting (trimmed bottom edge, otherwise Ex), Murphy (trimmed, otherwise Vg), Wagner/throwing (HOF, SGC Authentic), and ZImmerman (slight trim to top and bottom edges, otherwise Ex-Mt). A rarely offered collection of these scarce caramel cards, which could serve as the foundation for the assembly of a very attractive E92 set. While it would be almost hard to imagine that the entire set of all fifty cards could be assembled with matching Croft's Candy advertising backs, with patience perhaps it is possible, and this would certainly be a great start. Total: 19 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
