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 E92 set consists of a total of 62 different cards. However, the cards contain 4 different backs: Dockman & Sons, Nadja, Croft’s Candy and Croft’s Cocoa. Only the Nadja backs can be found with all 62 fronts. The Dockman and Sons backs, which are most commonly found, only have 40 of the 62 fronts. The other two Croft backs both have 50 of the 62 fronts.

The poses found in this set are identical to ones used in E101/E102 and E106.
