Collection of four E98 Anonymous "Set of 30" cards including Hall of Famer Hughie Jennings, each graded and encapsulated by SGC: Red Dooin (VG+ 45, Philadelphia Phillies), Hughie Jennings (HOF, POOR 10, Detroit Tigers), Johnny Kling (POOR 10, Chicago Cubs), and Fred Tenney (POOR 10, New York Giants). E98s are found with four different background colors: blue, green, orange, and red. All cards in this lot feature a blue background. The manufacturer of E98 is unknown, and the set may be easily confused with other caramel-card sets of the era (E93 and E94 specifically); this is an entirely different set even though it uses many of the same subjects and poses. For many years, E98s were among the scarcest of the 1910-era caramel cards, but the recent “Black Swamp Find” has changed the population dramatically. E98s have always been very desirable, and their increased availability and noteworthiness due to the find may have actually increased the demand as more collectors have become familiar with the set. This group represents an outstanding selection of early caramel cards and a great start to collecting one of the era's most popular sets. Total: 4 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
