    1911 E94 Close Candy Frank Chance (Red) PSA NM-MT 8 - Pop One, None Higher! The E94 George Close Candy card set is one of the more intriguing vintage baseball card sets. Your first impression is that it appears to be your basic thirty-card set which was issued in 1911. Then you notice the Hall of Fame-packed roster. Then it dawns on you that that you don't really see them offered nearly as often as other candy sets of this era. The set remains one of the more difficult early Caramel and Gum promotions to complete but the names and background color options - each player can be found with seven different color backgrounds E94 specialists can't help but become obsessed. Elevating rarity to a whole new level are the very small sampling of cards that display advertising for different George Close products on the reverse. We estimate these treasured variants appear on less than one percent of E94s.

    Offered is HoFer Frank Chance with a blazing red background. Frank Chance was major reason for the success of the Chicago Cubs during the first decade of the 20th century. His E94 George Close card offers a far more appealing portrait compared to his E92 entry.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. From a total population of just twenty-one submissions, this card is the highest graded example with no equal or better example known. From the entire PSA population that has yet to reach 700 cards, we see only six, or 1% graded NM-MT with one higher. Elsewhere in this auction is an E94 graded NM_MT featuring Johnny Evers.
