Graded VG 3 by SGC (submitted by REA). Beautiful example of Cleveland Naps Hall of Famer Nap Lajoie from the E92 Dockman & Sons set. This card is part of an exciting, fresh-to-the-hobby collection consigned to this auction by the family of a Midwestern collector who built his impressive collection over a period of many decades, beginning as a young boy in the 1930s. This rare caramel issue from 1909 shares designs with several other closely related candy issues (Croft's Candy, Nadja Caramels, etc.) from the same era. Widely recognized as one of Lajoie's most popular and beautifully designed cards, the offered example has a flawless image set against a vibrant colored background. Bold colors, moderate wear to the four corners (a touch more in the upper right), and excellent centering. The back is also bright and crisp, with bold text. This is an attractive example of the legendary Nap Lajoie from this rare, early twentieth-century candy issue. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
