    Description

    1932 U.S. Caramel Joe Cronin #7 SGC 35 Good+ 2.5. This auction features the final examples from a fresh collection of U.S. Caramels that yielded some the nicest cards to surface in decades. We have to thank the very existence of this collection on a descendent of the man who bought them in back in 1932 and obviously and wisely choose to never handle them. The classic "cigar box" find, the cards lay dormant for the better part of a century in a box adorned, appropriately enough, with stamps and paper ephemera about the 1932 Olympics. Cronin's insight into the game was so prevalent as a player that he made the quick transition to player/manager at the tender age of 27. His ascent did not end there, as he later served two terms as AL President. Graded SGC 35 Good+ 2.5, this card has some surface wear and staining to explain the grade. There is some slight surface chipping along a segment of the edge in the upper left. An attractive card for the grade level.
