World Class 1910 E93 Standard Caramel Collection Featured in Mile High Card Company July Auction

Mile High Card Company is Accepting Consignment in New England June 15th – June 18thSet to begin on Monday, June 22nd, Mile High Card Company’s July Auction kicks off with the most impressive group of E93 Standard Caramel cards ever offered at auction. Headlined by the only PSA 9 specimens in existence of Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, Christy Mathewson and Deacon Philippe, 17 of the 30 cards in the E93 series will presented individually for sale.

Created in 1886 by legendary chocolatier Milton Hershey, the Lancaster Caramel Company was sold for the staggering sum of one million dollars in 1900 and broken into smaller companies, the Standard Caramel Company among them, with Hershey retaining the rights to one of its subsidiaries; the Hershey Chocolate Company. Similar to the E98 series made famous by the recently discovered “Black Swamp” find, this issue from Standard Caramel is considerably more difficult to find in top condition. PSA has graded a comparable number from both sets, with the E98 series yielding 64 PSA 9’s and 4 PSA 10’s compared to just 13 PSA 9’s and no PSA 10’s from the E93 collection. Packed alongside the sticky candy and marketed to children, there are far fewer high-grade survivors compared to T206 cards of the same era, inserted with loose tobacco and marketed to adults.

In addition to 4 of the 13 existing MINT cards from the E93 series, PSA 8 examples of Napoleon Lajoie, Eddie Plank, Fred Clarke, Mordecai Brown, Clark Griffith, Jim Pastorius, Harry Covaleski, Jim Delehanty and Hooks Wiltse are joined by PSA 7 offerings of Rube Waddell, Davy Jones, George Gibson and Red Dooin. With about 6% of all submissions from the E93 series achieving a grade of PSA 7 or higher, this promises to be a memorable event for early 20th Century collectors.
