Beautiful, colorful example of the Hall of Fame second basemen from one of the hobby's more scarce caramel issues, the E105 Mello Mint Gum series.  Issued in 1910 by the Texas Gum Company, the E105 series was a 50 card set shares its checklist with the various E92 series of cards, with an attractive, green ad on the reverse.  The cards are particularly scarce today, with fewer than 500 examples graded, and the majority at the lower end of the scale (so many have been folded in half lengthwise that it is often theorized that they needed to be folded that way in order to fit into the gum packs).

Graded EX 60 by SGC, the card has a L-R centering issue and some mild discoloration at the bottom, but is particularly strong for the issue.  The Mello-Mint ad on the reverse is clean and bold.  An excellent example from a highly desirable issue.
