E300 Plow’s Candy Overview

E300 19 Dahlen.jpg

The E300 Plow’s Candy card set is an incredibly rare issue.

The fronts of these cards includes no real decoration. A player image is presented in the middle with his name and team given as well. The tops read “Plow’s Candy Collection” with no further advertisement. Backs are entirely blank and cards were printed both horizontally and vertically.

One thing that makes this set a bit unique is that, as Goodwin Auctions noted here, pictures on the cards were not known to be reused over and over, as was the case in other pre-war issues. Some images were used in other sets but many are unique to the Plow’s issue. Another notable design-related issue here is that the borders on them were considerably thicker than most other cards of the era.

Another interesting aspect that the cards have a much more similar width/height ratio compared to today’s cards than the narrower issues typically seen in that era. At 3″ wide x 4″ tall, these are much closer to the size of today’s trading cards than typical early 1900s tobacco and candy cards.

While plain and basic in appearance, these cards are incredibly rare. So rare, in fact, that we don’t even know how many were printed in the set.
