Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. Highest-graded example and one of only three at this level! Outstanding high-grade example of Hall of Famer Hughie Jennings from the E96 Philadelphia Caramel series. A grade of EX-MT is extremely impressive for an E96 as only ten examples (of any subject) have ever graded NM 7 (none higher) out of 866 cards evaluated to date. The E96 set, issued by Philadelphia Caramel in 1910, is one of the most popular and colorful of all "E" card issues and is the follow-up to the E95 Philadelphia issue of the previous year. E96 cards are very similar in design to their E95 counterparts and can most easily be distinguished by the attractive red-printed checklist of the complete set on the reverse of each card. They were issued on fairly thin stock that did not easily escape damage or wear well over the years. Jennings is one of eight Hall of Famers featured in the E96 set and is portrayed in a portrait pose set against a striking multicolored background. As suggested by its impressive PSA grade, the offered example is in tremendous condition, especially compared to most other caramel cards, with a crisp, clean image, bold colors, outstanding centering, and four strong corners displaying only slight traces of wear. The reverse has a boldly printed red checklist. This is a superb example of one of Jennings’ most striking cards from one of the most popular and colorful of all “E” card issues, and one that would be a worthy addition to any extremely high-quality classic Hall of Fame, E96, or sample-card collection.
