following Baseball sets were all issued during the same era as the other
sets issued during the same time as E90.1 - E107 sets:
- American Caramel (1910)
A list of available players is listed on the back of the cards to date
not all players are known. These are large sized cards that are cutouts
of players from Philadelphia A's, New York Giants, Boston Red Sox, and
- Zeenuts (1911-1938)
issued by Collins-McCarthy on the west coast. These cards are hard to
find and consist of minor league PCL players. Zeenut cards cards were
issued every year from 1911 through 1938.
- Home Run Kisses (1912)
90 known players. Issued by Collins-McCarthy on the west coast. These
cards are very nice looking and quite rare.
& E154.2 - Cracker Jacks
Great looking cards issued in 1914 (E145.1) and 1915 (e145.2). 144 cards
were issued in 1914 and 176 issued in 1915. Originals are on very thin
paper stock and usually found in lower conditions. These cards have been
reprinted on thick card stock. Collector's BEWARE!
- Bishop & Company Team Cards (1910)
Issued by the same company as the E99 and E100 sets these are extremely
rare and are on very thin paper. To my knowledge only 5 of the 6 teams
used for the E99 and E199 sets is known.
- A.W.H. Caramels (circa 1910)
There are only 10 known cards is this rare set. All of the players are
from the Virginia League and this set is so rare only the most hard-core
collectors go after one. It is high on the wanted lists of most type collectors.
- Texas Tommy Type 1 and type 2 (1914)
Not much is known about the company that issued these cards. There are
50 known type 1 players and 15 type 2. These cards do contain stats on
the back of the cards. Type one cards are larger - 2.375" X 3.5"
as opposed to type 2s which are 1.875" X 3".
& E270 - Colgan's Chips (circa 1909-1911)
E254s are the more common variety of these two sets. E254s are
round, borderless and there are over 300 known players in the set. They
are all on very thin paper stack and came issued in little metal tins.
come in 2 different ways. One has a red border around the front of the
card and the other type looks just like E254s but have different wording
on the backs.
- Darby Chocolates (1910)
Extremely rare cards that are actually the panels of a box of candy. New
examples have been found in the last 20 years but most are in poor condition.
Examples of full boxes are known and unless you have big $$$ to spend
very few collectors have an example of these cards in there collection.
- Ju Ju Drums (1910)
Very rare cards. They were the competition to Colgan's Chips. There are
40-50 known players and are round and were issued in cardboard "tins".
- Plow's Candy (circa. 1912)
Very rare but very nice looking 3" X 4" sepia tone cards. There
are 68 known players and this set was unknown until the 1970s. Should
not be confused with Plow Boy tobacco cards. E300s have players from every
team where as the Plow Boys only have players from the Chicago teams.
There are a number of sets that are post ACC discoveries and are just
given "EUnc" designations. Checklists grow every year as new
players are found. These sets include:
Bats (circa. 1911) - 50 known, cards are box panels.
Baseball (circa. 1910) - 24 known, cards are box panels.
Eater (circa. 1911) - 20 known Sacramento Solons PCL players.
Border Stripe cards (circa. 1910) - part of box of candy. Box states
144 are in the set - 28 known
- (1910?) - 5 players known, all well known HOF players. Cards appear
to be part of a box.
