E102 Anonymous Set of 25 Overview

E102 Back


Dubbed as the E102 Anonymous set of 25, the distributor and maker of the set is currently unknown. It looks like a standard caramel card issue but who it belongs to remains a mystery. It is believed the cards were produced in 1909.

At 25 cards, this set included half as many cards as the E101 Anonymous Set of 50. But it shares a lot in common with that since since not only do these same players appear in the E101 issue, but the picture are exactly the same as well.

Unlike that set, though, a complete checklist was included on the back. That was a little more feasible since there are many fewer E102 cards.

Note that while there are 25 different players, there are actually a total of 29 cards in the set due to some variations for a few players.
