Graded GOOD 2 by PSA (submitted by REA). This extremely rare E102 "Set of 25" candy card features the legendary Honus Wagner in a throwing pose. It is interesting to note that this is only the second "throwing pose" example of Wagner from the E102 series that we have offered in the past seventeen years! The manufacturer of E102 is unknown. The throwing 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." The back simply reads "This Picture is one of a Set of Twenty-five Base Ball Players, as follows:" In 1909, Wagner led the league in every major batting category including batting average, on-base percentage, total bases, and RBI. This example displays vibrant colors, rounded corners, and a boldly printed checklist reverse. This is a very attractive example of one of Honus Wagner's most elusive cards, issued at the peak of his career. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
