E93 Standard Caramel Overview

E93 21 Mathewson.jpg

The E93 Standard Caramel set includes 30 different players and is one of the more popular sets of early candy and caramel cards.

Fronts are colorful with an image of the player as well as their name and team. Backs include the header “Base Ball Stars” and the full checklist of 30 cards. Several typos exist on the cards. Pictures of the players shown will be familiar to many collectors with some repeated in other sets. The Mathewson image shown here, for example, was used in several other issues, including the famous T206 set.

The set, anchored by Ty Cobb and Honus Wagner, includes numerous stars and big names. A few players, Addie Joss and Eddie Plank, appear here and are noteworthy due to their exclusion from several other E-card sets. More than half of the entire issue is comprised of Hall of Fame players and its checklist is one of the big reasons for its popularity.

One of the more unique star cards is that of Hall of Famer Cy Young. Young won 511 major league games as a pitcher but this set has one of the few pictures of him brandishing a bat as he’s taking a swing.

The original Standard Caramel Company building in Lancaster, PA is still standing to this day.
