    Very Rare 1910 E102 "Set of 25" Honus Wagner, Throwing PSA EX-MT 6.5 - The Finest Recorded Example! There really is no need to go into length about the greatness of the baseball legend featured on this card. Baseball fans and card collectors alike know who Honus Wagner was and his contributions to the sport. Cards bearing his likeness, and not just the T206 hobby king, are among the most coveted and highly sought after cards I the hobby has to offer. While his appearance in tobacco issues is to say the least "limited" his appearance on cards some with candy products fills a void that would be sorely missed.

    With no sponsor noted on the cards, the authors of the American Card Catalog simply referred to the "E102" issue as a "Set of 25" and could not be faulted as card backs list 25 subjects. We know now a complete set is 29 cards, not 25. The four additions include one of the most famously rare early "E" cards - the Dots Miller "Fielding" variant. As well-known is the name "Wagner," the rarity of this card goes unrealized. Veteran E102 fans are all too aware of the rarity of this card as it is missing from their sets. Claims of rarity are bolstered by the fact this card is NOT noted in Jim Egan's book, "Handbook to U.S. Early Candy and Gum Baseball Issues" and, in an October 2009 Heritage auction, a low grade example of this card was described as "one of only six total examples graded to date." Only one more example has been graded by PSA in the last six years! We would be pleased to offer any example. The opportunity to present the highest graded card combining the PSA and SGC census is something special.

    Graded PSA EX-MT 6.5 with nothing to contradict the assessment. It's a solid example and accurately graded in our opinion. SGC has reviewed only two - one Poor and one VG. As mentioned, this is one of only seven total PSA examples graded to date and is by far the highest graded example (the runner up is a lone VG-EX+).
