    1909 E95 Philadelphia Caramel Near Set (21/25). Produced by the Philadelphia Caramel company of Camden, New Jersey this set is considered one of the finest early candy issues and is a favorite of many advanced vintage collectors. While many other candy issues of the day used the same artwork, the E95 set features unique images and is very colorful by contrast. The set was printed on thin paper stock and that makes them very susceptible to creasing. In total, 15 cards have been graded by SGC. Missing Maddox, McIntyre, Reulbach and Willetts for completion. This 21-card near set includes: Graded - SGC 60 EX 5: 1 card, Hoffman; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 2 cards w/Chance and Morgan; SGC 40 VG 3: 5 cards w/ Cicotte, Evers, Lord, Mathewson and Willis; SGC 30 Good 2: 4 cards w/ Bender, Devlin, Leach and Merkle; SGC 10 Poor 1: 3 cards w/ Cobb, Plank and Wagner. Ungraded - includes: Carrigan, Collins (FR), Crawford (FR), Doyle, Krause and Wiltse. Grades 48% VG to EX, 24% GD, 28% PR to FR.
