Set Description

Caramel cards in general are much rarer than tobacco cards of the era. Because they were issued with caramels one card per package and sold to children (as opposed to being sold to adults with tobacco), they also tend to survive in a much lower grade.

The E103 set is extremely difficult to find in high grade, even when compared to other issued caramel card, due the extremely thin paper stock. The back of these cards are blank. While no certain card in this set is more difficult to find in comparison to other cards in the set, in general the e103s are very difficult to find. The e103s all have a red background and the players are shown in a portrait pose.

The Williams Candy Company was located in Oxford, Pa., and this candy was very likely issued on a somewhat regional basis, which explains the rarity of these cards.
