E92 (1909) Dockman, Nadja, Croft’s Candy, Croft’s Cocoa

Caramel E92 Nap Lajoie
Set Description

Often considered the least collected type of caramel cards due to the inaccurate portrayal of certain players on the cards. The cards were issued between the 1908 and 1920 in 3 series (A,B, and C). The art that was used in the A set was duplicated in the B and C sets, and only the players name changed. This obviously resulted in cards showing the picture of one player with the name of a different player. Of all 99 cards issued, only 78 are unique.

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.

Important Notes

The Dockman & Sons back are the most common
The Nadja backs are the most difficult to find
