Modestly graded sample card of 1910 E105 Mello-Mint featuring Germany Schaefer of the Washington Senators. The E105 Mello-Mint set is one of the rarest of all 1910-era candy-card issues. Because Mello-Mints are printed on such thin stock, they are usually found crinkled or creased. Graded POOR 1 by SGC, the obvious condition flaws include multiple creases, rounded corners, and the lower left corner is missing. The Mello-Mint advertisement on the back is boldly printed in green against an off-white background. E105s tend to survive in very modest condition. This is a presentable sample from one of prewar-card collecting's most condition-sensitive candy-card issues. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
