1889 N29 Allen & Ginter Buck Ewing PSA MINT 9
Starting Bid - $4,000.00, Sold For - $15,080.00
Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Only two examples have ever been graded at this extraordinary level with none graded higher. This is a simply incredible ultra high-grade example of Hall of Famer Buck Ewing from the 1889 N29 Allen & Ginter Second Series World Champions set. Ewing is the key card and the only Hall of Famer in the set. This is a stunning example in all respects. All four corners are perfect and razor-sharp. The card is bright and clean, both front and back, with Ewing's perfectly-focused portrait standing out brilliantly against the snow-white background. The registration is flawless. It is rare to find any nineteenth-century card in such high grade, let alone one of the era's most classic cards of such a prominent Hall of Famer. The N29 Buck Ewing is one of the most famous of all nineteenth-century baseball cards and is widely recognized as one of Buck Ewing's most important cards. As previously noted, this is PSA's highest-graded N29 Allen & Ginter of Ewing. The finest example we have ever handled or even seen, this is an extraordinary card which would be a significant addition to the most advanced nineteenth-century, Hall of Famer, or world-class vintage card collection. Reserve $4,000. Estimate $8,000/$12,000. SOLD FOR $15,080.00
