E122 American Caramel Overview

E122 Backe122-eversThe E122 American Caramel set is a similar issue in appearance to the E121 release. Fronts include black and white images with the player’s name, position, and team.

The biggest difference in terms of design on the front is that the border around the picture was extended to also include the text at the bottom. The text area is shaded to help it appear as a distinct area apart from the photograph. The backs are similar to the E121 set as well, mentioning the cards as part of a set of 80 and distributed by the American Caramel Company.

Unlike the E120 and E121 cards, though, these aren’t as collector-friendly in part because of their scarcity and subsequently higher prices.

The cards are commonly off center. They are quite often found with large borders of white space on either the side or top/bottom. Well-centered cards from this set can be a challenging find for any collector.

While 82 cards are in the set, the back advertisement of 80 players can be explained away pretty easily. Two cards of Ferdie Schupp exist (one misspelled as ‘Fred’) and two George Sisler cards are present – a batting pose and fielding pose. While there are are technically 82 different cards, only 80 players are indeed found in the issue.
