Graded EX 5 by PSA. This is the ONLY example that has ever been graded by PSA! Striking high-grade card of Admiral Schlei of the New York Giants from the 1909 E92 Croft's Cocoa set, with advertising for "Croft's Swiss Milk Cocoa" of Philadelphia on the reverse. The same designs were also issued with advertising on the reverse for Croft's & Allen Candy. It appears that both varieties of these cards were issued by the Croft & Allen Co. of Philadelphia to be handed out as advertising items to promote its candy and cocoa, which, as noted on the back of this card, is "Served Hot at our fountain 11 South 15th St. Montague & Co. Philadelphia, Pa." The offered example has a crisp image set against a vibrant colored background. Centered toward the top with four strong corners. The reverse is boldly printed, with the printed advertisement centered to the extreme left. This is a very attractive high-grade sample card from this rare set. Reserve $200.
