Default E106's - Rare or Unpopular?

Posted By: Will

Trying to put my first grading submission together around some long work days. Trying to find general info on E106's - very few posts, 1 common sale on ebay. Rare or just not well loved? Estimated value of a low-mid range HOF as a nice 10?
Thanks - Will

I think its a little of both. They are scarcer than most of the popular caramel sets. I like them because they are one of the few sets that has Federal League Players. IMO If it was a unique brand (not American Caramel Co.) and didnt have the same photos as many other sets, they would be much more in demand .

The overall quality of e106 leads to lower demand, lower prices, and lower condition survivors, but also less examples overall which makes the set uncommon.

The images are slightly distorted compared to their counterpart poses found in different sets.

Here is what Old Cardboard says:

Year(s) Published: 1915
ACC Designation: E106
Set Name: American Caramel
Card Size (inches): 1-1/2 x 2-3/4
Number of Cards in Set: 48
Est. Value (common; VG): $65

This puts them at the chronological tail end of most of this type of cards. They appear to be both not very common and not very pricey. This status may be due in part to the set not having new poses, simply modifications showing and simulating team changes. The set does reflect the Federal League, and for some reason "they" think that Wagner was a second baseman.

After this set the b&w cards and the strip cards were the primary cards available (well, also after the CJs).

Thanks for the info - boy that was quick! Mine is a Federal Leaguer (Baltimore), given as a gift many years ago. It may hit the b/s/t, so enough said by me.

After tracking eBay for over a year and every major auction house you just don't see that many E106's come up for auction in a graded format. We have price information on 13 of the 48 cards in the set. Most of the auctions are for cards in the lower end of the grading scale SGC 10 & PSA 1. So to conclude they don't come up for auction very often so they must be very hard to find and the highest graded card we have is a PSA 4 so getting them in pristine condition would be practically impossible.

Your conclusions Bobby, apply only to graded cards, correct? The ungraded population, its distribution and pricing is not among the data which you have ready access to - is that also correct?

No harm/no foul here.
No misleading either.

Edited to add:

I certainly do not mean to infer that you would mislead anyone. Heck, what would be your motivation to do that? I know that you are all about helping us, and have expended a tremendous amount of effort, and have met with a tremendous level of success in accomplishing that objective.

I thank you for what you have done, and for the resource which you offer to all of us, both the free resource and the pricing/etc. subscription one.

Alot of the images in this set were used from previous sets.I think this would be one reason collectors aren't as keen to this collection.I've handled a fair amount of these cards (years ago),so I'm quite fond of them.Since then,I haven't seen very many of them,so I would have to say that it would be both.

My 2 cents,

Love the set, love the team changes. I believe more collectors who collect "high end" cards do not appreciate the set because you rarely find the cards in any condition higher than "Fair." Additionally, as mentioned earlier, the frequency with which they turn up makes completing the set quite difficult and probably frustrates many collectors.
