Graded NM 7 by SGC. Highest-graded example on the combined SGC and PSA population reports! This rare E102 "Set of 25" candy card features the legendary Honus Wagner in a classic batting pose. The manufacturer of E102 is unknown. The batting pose of Wagner on this card is identical to that found in several rare sets of the era, including T216 Kotton Tobacco and E101 "Set of 50." This is a very striking card. Bright and crisp, with bold colors, flawless registration, and outstanding centering. Clean front and back, with no creases and four strong corners displaying only light hints of wear under close inspection. The back provides a checklist of the 25 cards in the set. In 1909, Wagner led the league in every major batting category, including batting average, on-base percentage, total bases, and RBI. This is a magnificent ultra high-grade example of one of Honus Wagner's most classic cards, issued when he was "King of the Diamond." Reserve $2,500. Estimate (open).
