    1910 E93 Standard Caramel Hugh Jennings SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5 - Pop One, Highest Example Known! Hugh Jennings saw the greatest period of development the spry young sport of baseball had yet to match. For the better part of 40 years Jennings excelled as both player and manager. Regardless of his role, success followed. He was an excellent shortstop for the Baltimore Orioles who won National League championships in 1894, 1895 and 1896. Jennings even batted the exalted .400 mark with a .401 average in 1896 belting out 209 hits. He was also hit by a pitch 51 times that year (a record that still stands). With Brooklyn, Jennings helped make them pennant winners in 1899 and 1900. An educated man, Hugh passed the bar in 1905 and practiced law during the off-season for the remainder of his lifetime. His taste for managing came from his days coaching at Cornell University Law and for 13 seasons Jennings managed/coached the Detroit Tigers starting in 1907. His Tigers, with the help of Sam Crawford and a brash youngster named Cobb, won the pennant in 1907, '08 and 1909 but never managed to win a World Series title before retiring in 1920. His whistling, wild dance moves, and shouts of "Ee-Yah" are now woven into the tapestry of the history of the game for which Jennings will also be known for.
    Early "E" cards at the upper condition echelons (84 NM 7 or higher) are very rare and highly treasured by the lucky hobbyist who adds them to a revered collection. The thirty E93 Jennings cards submitted to PSA shows only one has been graded higher. The SGC report shows 44 examples have been submitted and this by far the one and only most superior copy graded to date. Nestled below this card are a pair at the 80 EX/NM level. The front/back surfaces clean enough satisfy the most discriminating critic. The colors are probably as vibrant and clear as they were a century ago and the same can be said of the problem free print of the reverse. The very small specks of roughness along the top border as seen on the reverse is all that seems to have made the 92 NM/MT+ grade a necessity and even that could be debated. This is a fabulous example of an E93 as one will ever hope to find.
