1911 E94 Blome’s Chocolates Candy Overview

E94 Blome Chocolate BackE94 26 Murray.jpgThe E94 George Close Candy set includes 30 different players. Many of the cards in that set can be found with various overprints stamps on the back for Close Candy. One is a little different since it includes a stamp for Blome’s Chocolates.

Blome’s Chocolates (The George Blome and Son Company) was a candy company based in Baltimore.

The Blome’s Chocolates stamp is distinctive with a deep red ink and large cursive writing. The stamp is on the back of the card. Cards with the Blome’s Chocolates stamp (or other overprint stamps with the Close Candy name) are rarer than the regular E94 cards and command a premium. These cards are no different than the standard Close Candy cards aside from the stamp on the back.

Fronts are colorful with an image of the player as well as their name and team, looking similar to other candy issues of the same era. Backs include the header the full checklist of 30 cards.
