E90-2 American Caramel Overview

The E90-2 American Caramel set honored the 1909 Pittsburgh Pirates. Despite an ad for more than 100 total players in the set, the entire checklist includes only 11 players. As only a team issue, there was likely never any intention for that many players in the E90-2 set as the company merely used the same back for its popular E90-1 American Caramel set.

Cards included a player portrait on the front along with his last name and “Pittsburg” for the team. The name and team were both printed in blue ink – a change from the E90-1 American Caramel set.

Led by Honus Wagner, the 1909 Pirates won the National League and then the club’s first ever World Series by defeating the Detroit Tigers. Wagner led the league in numerous offensive categories, including runs batted in and batting average.
