This is an incredible example of this significant nineteenth-century rarity. Advanced collectors have appreciated the mystique of the most rare pre-1900 baseball card issues for decades. And whether it is because of the brand name, their unusual look, extreme rarity, or a combination of these factors, few card issues cause the stir that Yum Yum Tobacco cards do among the most serious die-hard collectors. This is a great looking card. A little wear to the corners, but still overall we grade this card Excellent. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $2,875.00
