Presented is a low-grade example of Hall of Famer Hughie Jennings from the E104-3 Nadja Caramels set, one of the most distinctive, unusual, and important rarities of all 1910-era caramel-card issues. These cards are often confused with similarly designed "E" card and related sets (especially E104-1 and E104-2), but are distinct, featuring designs that are unique to this set, and therefore have an enormous significance to 1910-era cards and caramel cards in general that is often overlooked by collectors, probably in large part because all cards from this set are so incredibly rare. To date, thirty-six different subjects are known, featuring players from five different teams (mostly Tigers, Phillies, and Giants players, but one Cleveland player and two Cardinals are also known). Graded FR 1.5 by SGC, the offered example of Jennings displays moderate soiling on both the front and back. Boldly printed with perfect registration, the portrait image of Jennings is only slightly impacted by the soiling. A presentable Hall of Famer example of a significant caramel-card rarity. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
