The Yahtzee Box Find has also brought us this great group of 33 cards from the 1922 American Caramel E121 Series of 120. Three members of the 1939 "Original Eleven" Hall of Fame inductees have been graded by PSA: Tris Speaker "Small Projection" GD 2 (MK); Grover Cleveland Alexander GD 2 (MK); and George Sisler "Batting" FR 1.5 (MK). As with the Zee-Nuts in Lots 20-22, the original collector marked his cards in pencil many decades ago; hence, the "MK" qualifers. All three are dated in pencil ("1922") on the back; only Sisler has writing (a small "2" at top) on the front.

The rest of the ungraded bunch fall in similar PR to VG condition range, dated on the back in pencil. They include fellow Hall of Famers E.S. "Sam" Rice [sic, E.C.) (VG/OC), Harry Heilmann (GD+), Joe Sewell (VG), and Dave Bancroft (FR). The rest is Urban Shocker (GD+), Wambsganss (VG), "Bullet Joe" Bush (FR+), Jack "Stuffy" McInnis (GD), Charlie Grimm (VG/OC), Dick Kerr (VG-EX with no MK), Gowdy (VG-EX/OC with no MK), Falgstead [sic, Flagstead] (VG-EX), Joe Judge (PR), E. Scott (GD), Killifer "Batting" (GD), Barber (GD), Otto Miller (FR), Zeb Terry (GD), Earl Smith (VG), Jim Bagby (GD), M. Stock (FR), Snyder (GD), G. Gibson (GD), Bill Ryan (VG), Pat Shea (GD), W. Holke "Portrait" (FR), C. Hodge (GD), E. Sheely (GD/OC), Fred Tony (VG), and Ozzie Vitt (VG/MC).

See Lots 30 and 31 for Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb cards in this set.
