This is the "Rodney Dangerfield" set of vintage card collecting.....
that is, "it doesn't get much respect". On this current Forum54 page
two posters have initiated topics regarding this set and there has not
been much of a follow-up. This has also been true of past postings on
this set.
Well, I will tell you I have a lot of RESPECT for this set, as it took me
quite a few years to complete it. Fortunately, I did it when it was still
affordable. My 1st E90-1 card was the really tough Mike Mitchell, since
in an early '80s BB card Mag. it was listed as a "must buy" rare card.
So, being a set collector, once I acquired it, I thought the remaining
119 cards would be "easy". Boy, was I in for a rude awakening.

The backs of these Caramel cards advertised 100 Subjects and this was
likely the intended original design. But, the American Caramel Co. kept
adding cards of players due to trades during 1909 - 1911. In fact the
2nd Cy Young (pitching pose) card reflects his trade to Cleveland.
Two cards were issued of Fred Clarke....the 1st erroneously depicted
him with Philadelphia; then, they corrected this by issuing a 2nd card
of him with Pittsburg. And, the list of additional cards goes on and on.

Anyhow, I don't claim to be an expert on this set, but I would be curious
to see how many members on this Forum have completed this set ?

Come on let's talk it up...."this is the kind of stuff that (BB card) dreams
are made of"....Trivia....what movie is that quote from ?

Ted,

I used to collect this set a long time ago. It was really cheap in the 80's. For some reason or other people didn't like the caramel sets too much back then. That's one reason I started to pick them up because they could be had for a song. I got through about 40 - 50 different cards and then got interested in other things. I ended up trading most of them within the last 10 years or so. I only kept a few of the cards. They truly are a nice set to collect. The poses and colors make them attractive. The nice challenge about this set is that it has over 100 cards with a lot of great players. I guess the amount of players and distribution (relative to T206) makes this set kind of tough to finish but it is a goal that can be reached (unless you need Jackson and Mitchell, then it might be a little expensive and/or tough).

Ted,

I had complete set minus Jackson, but with 2 Mitchells - one very nice(PSA 5). Many cards were trimmed. Now I just have the Boston cards all graded in the 3 to 5 range. Sometime will get the ones that are not in SGC holders crossed over. I am back from Honduras and will email you about 49 Leafs.

I own 30-40 cards from this set, mostly HOFERS. Not tempted to complete the set but do enjoy some of the individual cards.

Looking back at what I collected in the 80s, probably my only regret was not paying more attention to caramel cards, this set in particular. I was always on the lookout for a Jax, but could never find one at a price I liked.

You got it right....you are the Trivia King for the day.

Now, do you recall who, of the 3 main actors in that particular
scene in the Maltese Falcon, said this quote ?
