Outstanding trio of Hal Chase from three classic 1910-era caramel-card sets. Chase was, in fact, a major star of the day, but his involvement with gambling and with unsavory characters undermined his legend, and ensured that he would forever remain a "non-Hall of Famer." He had been accused of throwing games numerous times; it is universally agreed (both then and now) that these accusations were well founded. He "retired" following the 1919 season after being implicated in the Black Sox scandal. Still, his charisma and his Hall of Fame-caliber ability (when he wasn't throwing games) won him many fans, and makes him one of the most interesting players of his era. Each card is graded and encapsulated by SGC. 1) 1909 E92 Dockman & Sons: Chase (VG+ 3.5, centered to the left with light corner wear and a natural diamond cut along the top and bottom). 2) 1909 E92 Nadja Caramels: Chase (VG 3, centered to the top with slightly rounded corners and a natural diamond cut along the top and bottom). 3) 1909 E102 Anonymous Set of 25: Chase (VG 3, centered to the top with slightly rounded corners and a natural diamond cut along the top and bottom). This group provides an excellent opportunity to acquire presentable yet relatively affordable examples of these classic Hal Chase cards. Total: 3 cards. Reserve $100. Estimate (open).
