The American Caramel E90-1 issue is sometimes referred to as the T206 of caramel issues, and has been dubbed "The Kraken" in some quarters due to the challenges of collection the 120 subjects found within.  Ty Cobb is among the many Hall of Famers in the set, which was issued with a stick of caramel that, as one might imagine, led to condition issues that plague the set.  This example was spared some of the more direct results of that, though a light stain is visible at the top left.  The card has been well-handled but not abused, with a light surface indentation and a very light horizontal bend in the card near the left edge.  Corners exhibit rounding with some surface abrasions near the bottom border of the card.  All in all, however, an extremely strong example given the grade.
