Graded VG 3 by SGC (submitted by REA). This rare E102 "Set of 25" candy card features the legendary Honus Wagner in a classic batting pose. 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. 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 example offers near-perfect centering, bold colors, and flawless registration. This card shows honest corner wear and a crease on the lower right. Clean checklist reverse. In 1909, Wagner led the league in every major batting category including batting average, on-base percentage, total bases, and RBIs. This is a very attractive example of one of Honus Wagner's most classic cards, issued when he was "King of the Diamond." Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
