1909 E92 Dockman & Sons Baseball Cards
The 1909 Dockman & Sons E92 baseball card set consists of approximately 40 cards that measure 1½" by 2¾". The Dockman & Sons cards were included with caramel candies manufactured by Dockman & Sons Company. Similar E92 sets were released by Nadja Caramel Company, Croft's & Allen's Candy Company, and Croft's Cocoa Company.
The Dockman & Sons baseball cards have a short summary of the set and the manufacturer's information on the back. It reads "Base Ball Gum. This card is one of a set of 50 Base Ball Players" even though there are only 40 cards. Evidently the Dockman & Sons company chose to leave out 10 cards, one of which was Ty Cobb.
Hall-of-Famers included in this issue are: E92 Dockman & Sons Chief Bender, Frank Chance, Sam Crawford, Hughie Jennings, Nap Lajoie, Christy Mathewson, John McGraw, Joe Tinker, Honus Wagner and Cy Young.
