e90-3

Post by sabrjay on Thu Jan 31, 2008 2:43 am

A set issued by American Caramel featuring Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox players. Although the set features Chicago players, most cards seem to have been distrubuted in the Northern CA area as most large finds of these cards have originated there. Key cards to the set are Chick Gandil, Hahn, Smith and the Solly Hofman variation. At this time, there is only one known example of the Hofman variation, found by myself (Jay Behrens) back in 2002. A couple of the cards are known with 2 different colored backgrounds.

Cubs
Archer
Brown
Chance
Cole
Evers
Hofman
Hofman (Hofnlan)
Overall
Schulte
Sheckard
Steinfeldt
Tinker

White Sox
Blackburne
Dougherty
Gandil
Hahn
Payne
Purtell
Smith
Walsh
Zeider

I'm trying to figure out the appeal of this set and am not coming up with any answers.

-Poor player selection (limited to cubs and sox only)
-ugly looking cards (IMO)
-usually found in really low grades and OFTEN with BAD registration

So help me out here, what's the appeal of the set?

One observation about e90-3 is that the Gandil card seems to come up less often, and usually sells for big $.

The player selection isn't that bad. We are talking about the DBE Cubs with Tinkers-Evers-Chance along with Brown for HOFers and then you have Gandil and Walsh on the Sox side. The other appeal is rarity. Tough set with a popular team (Cubs) makes for a set that is in demand.

On another note, there are now at least 3 known examples of the Hofman variation.

I think the draw to this set is the Cubs. Several HOFers and alot of players from the Cubs last Championship team. The Cubs are highly sought after from this era for this exact reason
