Congrats! Always feels great to add a rarity to one's collection.

Still loving the example Jerry sold me a few years back

Any thoughts on why mine has the blank back and not an ad back? Was there another possible source these could have been cut from?

Great thread always liked the e95 set esp the Cobb. Which was the first Cobb I ever purchased. Paul Ghallager who ran the nyc show in the early 70's sold it to me at an antique show in Madison Square Garden in 1973 for $4 . My Dad bought a stack of 40 at ball yankees and we were hooked..

Default Re: Amazing E95 Discovery

Brian,

To answer your question as to the blank back version you inquired about.

I've researched the Philadelphia Caramel Company and their candy cards for
several years. While I don't have a definitive answer, I don't believe the blank
back version of the E95/E96 cards were issued by this company. In all of their
promotions they made it a point to brand their products. From their earliest
non-sport cards, to their last set of cards they issued, they ALWAYS included their
company name. It makes no sense to me why they would issue a blank back
card. The blank back version cards were likely cut from a folder that occasionally
pop up at auction. I honestly don't believe a candy company would issue a school
folder with picture cards. Had they done so, I believe they would've printed their
company name on it somewhere.

Here's an additional article that you might find interesting:

Hope this helps.

Erik,

Thank you for the detailed and thoughtful response! So a school folder then? Similar to the 1914-15 Notebooks that were released that contained those blank backed versions of e95s and e96s that are found semi-often?

Odd that it has the same scripting/captions at the top as the Cobb being discussed in this thread. For those that have this card with the ad back, what is the paper stock on the card like? Is it thicker than a normal e95? Mine is about the same in terms of thickness as a normal e95...maybe even a little slimmer. I suppose it's possible that the card could be skinned although mine doesn't exhibit any signs of distress on the back at all....

Brian,

Mine is entombed in a GAI holder but does seem to be "thinner" than most. I state this only because I have no other cards in GAI holders and this one seems to "float" around a whole lot looser. Hope this makes sense.

Greg

Thanks Greg, that makes perfect sense as that's how mine is as well. It's definitely not any thicker of paper stock than normal e95s, in fact, mine seemed maybe a tad more delicate even. Congrats on your new pick-up by the way!
