Graded FR 1.5 by SGC. E95 Philadelphia Caramel of Hall of Fame pitcher Eddie Plank of the Philadelphia Athletics. This is an exceptional modestly graded example of one of Plank's most classic cards. Plank is one of the keys to this scarce caramel-card set issued in 1909 by the Philadelphia Caramel Co. of Camden, New Jersey. The card is bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, evenly rounded corners, moderate creasing, and excellent centering. The soiled reverse features a boldly printed checklist for the set. This card is all the more noteworthy as the image on this card is based on the very same one used to produce the rare Plank card in the T206 White Border series. This is an extremely attractive modestly graded example of one of Plank's most striking cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
