The 1927 York Caramel E210 Type 1 set is among the most sought-after sets of the 1920s, and is viewed as the only true “E” series. Manufactured by a Pennsylvania caramel candy company and consisting of 60 cards, each piece measures 1-3/8” x 2-1/2” and features a black-and-white player image with a white border and his name identified at the bottom border, along with the card number. The reverse features the player’s name and team – oriented sideways and facing left – along with the company’s name. A large percentage of players in the offering later earned induction into Cooperstown. The set is anchored Burleigh Grimes (#1), Red Faber (#4), Gabby Hartnett (#5), Babe Ruth (#6), Rogers Hornsby (#13), Pie Traynor (#14), Hack Wilson (#25), Ty Cobb (#27), Tris Speaker (#28), and Walter Johnson (#45). The set features a fair number of errors and variations. The cards of Walter Ruether (#2), Joe Dugan (#3), Bob O’Farrell (#12), Jesse Haines (#30), and Clifton Heathcote (#35) were originally printed with the players’ last name misspelled, while Rogers Peckinpaugh (#56) was initially misprinted as “Roger Peckinpaugh.” Wilson’s card (#25) actually pictures Art Wilson, while William H. Terry’s card (#46) shows Zeb Terry Similarly, the card of George H. Burns (#9) shows George J. Burns, and Sherwood Smith (#31) pictures Jack Coom. Card #58 exists as either Clarence Galloway or Lester Bell.
