    Possibly Unique 1910 E271 Darby Chocolates Eddie Collins SGC Authentic! Plus Darby Candy Ephemera. The 1910 Darby Chocolate series was virtually unknown for decades until a collection was discovered in 1982 inside the wall of a building that had caught fire. Thanks to other finds, we know cards appeared two per box of "Pennant Chocolates" filling up the front and back panels. The promotion is still near the top of the "Rarest" list for candy issues of any era. SGC has only graded a total of seven E271s to date with this being the lone example of Hall of Fame second basemen Eddie Collins. To the extent of our auction archives, Eddie Collins has never been offered for public auction.

    Encapsulated SGC Authentic for damage and for being hand cut from the original box. For the "E" enthusiast or the Eddie Collins specialist this is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to acquire the rarest Collins card, equal in known population to his famous T206 proof. Also included is a 2-page letter on Darby Candy Co. letterhead and a printed promo sheet offering a free "Show Case" with the purchase of "Ten five boxes (or 50 pounds) at $10.00."
