1910 American Caramel Prize Fighters Overview

E75 Jack Johnson Boxing CaramelThis incredible set is one of the most power-packed boxing issues of all time, regardless of type.

With only 20 cards, that seems a little hard to believe. But when you consider that 16 of the cards feature Hall of Famers, it’s virtually a Who’s Who of boxing from the early 1900s. Headlining the set are Jack Johnson and John Sullivan, though there are plenty of other big names to choose from.

The set is similar to the E76 American Caramel set as well as the Canadian-issued V153 Robertson’s Candy release. The sets use the same pictures with only four checklist differences. E75 is a bit more star-studded as those sets are missing two key cards in Jack Johnson and Abe Attell, who is popular with baseball collectors for his role in the 1919 World Series fix between the Chicago White Sox and Cincinnati Reds.

Cards feature color pictures on the front with the boxer’s name in blue ink at the bottom. The backs are entirely blank and the cards are not numbered.  The set was designated as E75 in the American Card Catalog.

The set is relatively easy to put together in lesser grade and is a popular choice for collectors due to its small size and many stars. Like other American Caramel issues, some of the depictions are not the greatest. Still, this is an iconic set for many boxing collectors.
