This is the ONLY example that has ever been graded by PSA! Rare example of Al Bridwell (New York Giants) from the E125 American Caramel series. E125s have always been held in the highest esteem by advanced collectors both for their extreme rarity as well as for their very striking and unique design. The fragile nature of all die-cut cards and the easily broken flaps at the base of E125s, which allow them to stand, make complete, high-grade examples, such as the offered card, all the rarer. This E125 Al Bridwell (fielding pose) has survived complete. Bright and clean, with a crease on his left wrist, and a couple very light surface creases on the left arm near the elbow. The reverse of the card, which features a complete checklist of the New York Giants in the set and advertising for American Caramels, is bright and clean. Encapsulated by PSA as Authentic due to evidence of a glue repair to the right ankle; it is otherwise in Very Good to Excellent condition. This is an exceptional sample from one of the rarest and most condition-sensitive of all caramel-card issues. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
