Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $5,800.00
1888 N28 Allen & Ginter Champions collection of eight baseball players (out of ten ballplayers in the set), missing only Kelly and Glasscock for completion. Among the eight cards are five Hall of Famers. The eight cards included are: Cap Anson (overall Vg-Ex with rounded corners and slight toning on the reverse, no creases), Bennett (Vg-Ex with small stain in the upper right corner)), Caruthers (Vg-Ex/Ex), Clarkson (Vg-Ex, rounded corners, no creases, nice card), Comiskey (two tiny touches of paper loss on the reverse affecting a few letters on checklist, otherwise Ex), Keefe (Vg bordering on Vg-Ex), Mulvey (Ex), and Ward (a few tiny pinpoint flecks of paper loss on front and two tiny scrapes on the reverse, otherwise Ex-Mt). Allen & Ginter's are widely recognized as one of the most classic of all pre-1900 issues. This is a very clean and attractive near-complete set of this extremely popular nineteenth-century issue. Total 8 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $5,800.00
