Graded GOOD 2 (MK) by PSA. Extremely striking and attractive technically low-grade example of Ty Cobb, the key card of this very rare and classic 1910 era candy set. The E103 Williams Caramel set is easily distinguished from other caramel sets of the era by the bright red background highlighting each player's portrait. As noted on each card along the lower margin, the Williams Candy Company was in Oxford, Pennsylvania., and this candy was very likely issued on a somewhat regional basis. This fact almost certainly accounts for their great rarity. When they are found, they usually have serious condition problems, which is not surprising considering that these cards were issued to children one card per package with candy. Bright, clean, crisp, with a flawless image and a deep red background, centered toward the left (with a very slight tilt to the picture), rounded corners, and no creases. The blank back is clean, with evidence of erased pencil. This is a very attractive example of one of Cobb's most desirable and rare cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
