1889 N338-2 S. F. Hess Buck Ewing
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $13,920.00
Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. Extremely rare sample card of Hall of Famer Buck Ewing from the S. F. Hess tobacco set, one of the most elusive of all pre-1900 card issues. The S. F. Hess series features primarily New York Giants players. Of the twenty-three subjects known to date, sixteen are members of the Giants, champions of the National League in 1888 and 1889. This is an extremely desirable example of Buck Ewing, one of the key Hall of Famers in the set, and one of only two or three S. F. Hess Ewing cards known to exist. This is a solid Very Good condition card that has been downgraded to Good by SGC due to the to-the-left centering (which is not uncommon with S. F. Hess) and a very small and insignificant area of surface paper loss on the reverse. This is a prize example of a key Hall of Famer from N338-2 S. F. Hess Cigarettes, one of the rarest of all nineteenth-century baseball card sets. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $13,920.00
