    1910 E104-1 Nadja Caramels Eddie Plank SGC 50 VG/EX 4 - Highest Grade Known! The T206 Eddie Plank is frequently compared to the famed Honus Wagner of the same issue due to its rarity and monetary value which makes obtaining even a battered example well out of the financial reach of most vintage card collectors. There have been many theories as to why the Plank card is so scarce, including a desire not to be associated with tobacco products. As is the case with the T206 Wagner, there is a sugar based alternative. The undisputed key to the 18-card E104-1 Nadja Caramels series which showcases the Philadelphia Athletics of 1910 is their lefty ace hurler, and future Hall of Famer, Eddie Plank. This Plank portrait is derived from the same Carl Horner image used for the T206 version, and almost with a sense of mockery utilizes an all too familiar blue background. Graded SGC 50 VG/EX 4, this copy stands equal with only one other as the highest graded examples to date from both of the top two grading services. This example has a slightly angular cut and some rounding of the corners and no creases. It is an all too typical VG/EX card. How difficult is it going to be to pass on the opportunity to fill a "monster" sized gap in any Plank-less T206 collection, with a marvelous, relatively affordable solution. Being at the utmost height of known condition, this card can also serve as the crowning touch to an E104 assembly. Very attractive Very Good to Excellent condition.
