Default E93 Standard Caramel

So what's up with E93 Standard Caramel? Last time we had a thread about them was....well, quite some time ago (I don't remember when). This is kind of a neat pose and a card I have had for a long time. I am always a fan of big borders and this one doesn't disappoint. Would love to see others....
Another thing, I don't think it's been discovered yet how Standard Caramel cards were distributed nor am I aware of any packaging found yet? Maybe this thread will help enlighten me!!!

Such a great set. I hope to add a Wagner at some point. My only E93 and one that is really difficult to find centered.

This was the first set I really tried to put together, still need a Plank and Cobb to finish it out. Tons of great images, loaded with HOFers and not terribly expensive either make this a great set especially for someone just starting to dabble in the prewar realm. In addition, the lack of any real rarities means it can be completed in a short time.

I'm not aware of anything related to the packaging, but the e93/e97 front back card in the last REA auction points to both those sets being printed at the same time and same place.

I know I've posted this a few times in the past, but still one of my favorite cards.

I love this set and have thought about writing an article about it but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Regarding how they were distributed, I don't think it is known, but they certainly were not directly in contact with caramel since it is rare to see one with caramel staining. I have seen a few from an original collection, but they seem to have been the exception rather than the rule, unlike 1914 CJ for example.

I really like this set. Was working on it for awhile before deciding I couldn't afford another Cobb and Wagner. Jim, that set of yours is incredible.

I am new to the E93 set so please forgive my naivete, but, are there color background variations like in other caramel sets? I.E. Does one have to buy 5 Cobbs in 5 different background colors to complete it?
