Manufacturer: American Caramel Co.
Year of Issue: 1915

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.
American Caramel Co. of York, PA. Issued this set in 1915. The front of the card is similar to the E90-1 and E92 sets but has a glossy coating on the fronts. The backs have the manufacturers ad and state a set of 48 players.

Errors & Variations
- Due to their strong glossy obverse surface, these cards were very susceptible to heavy creasing and/or cracking, making even “VG” examples very difficult to come by.
