Thomas Leach (Pittsburgh Pirates) from 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 located 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 of candy. This example displays many condition issues. Graded POOR 10 by SGC due to heavy creasing, surface wear, and rounded corners. Despite the flaws, as can easily be seen, this remains a desirable card from the very difficult E103 set. Reserve $50.
