1911 Big Eater Candy Overview

Lewis Big Eater.jpgThe 1911 Big Eater Candy cards are a bit of an unknown. For one thing, it isn’t even completely known if Big Eater was a brand of candy. It is assumed that it is but has not yet been confirmed.

The cards appear to have originated in or near Sacramento, California, however. That’s because the set features players on the Sacramento Solons Pacific Coast League team.

As far as design, the cards are very plain. A black and white player image is on the front with the player’s last name at the bottom along with the phrase, ‘He eats Big Eater.’ Backs of the cards are completely blank.

Almost half of the players in the set eventually played in the major leagues.
