E101 (1909) Anonymous Set of 50

Caramel E101 Cy Young
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 E101 set is called the “Anonymous Set of 50” because the manufacturer is unknown. These rare cards share nearly identical designs with several other candy issued cards from the same era, such as Croft’s Candy, Dockman Gum and Nadja Caramels. The 50 players/poses are the same players/poses found in the E92, E102, and E106 sets.

Important Notes

Lobert is the toughest single to find
