1889 N43 Allen & Ginter Non-Baseball Collection SGC Graded (22)
Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $6,960.00
Collection of twenty-two different non-baseball N43 Allen & Ginters. The N43 series, the rarest of the three Allen & Ginter "Champions" sets, feature the same subjects and designs as the smaller N29 second series Allen & Ginters, but in a larger format and with extra background artwork added to each card's design. Measuring approximately 3 x 3.25 inches, the N43 Allen & Ginters are widely recognized as one of the most attractive sets ever issued. All twenty-two of the cards in this group have been graded and encapsulated by SGC as follows (unless otherwise noted): One NM 84: Sears, tennis. Three EX/NM 80: Albert, pedestrians (PSA EX-MT 6); Hill, club swinger (PSA EX-MT 6); Queckberner, weightlifter. Five EX+ 70: East, oarsman; Fitzgerald, pedestrians; Lange, walker; Paulsen, skater; Ray, pole vaulter. Two EX 60: Barry, hammer thrower and George, runner (PSA EX 5). Three VG/EX 50: Clarke, walker; Crist, cyclist; McCormack, skater. Seven VG 40: Cummings, runner; Ford, all-around athlete; Murphy, pugilist; Page, high jumper; O'Conner, oarsman (PSA VG 3); Temple, cyclist; Webb, swimmer. One GOOD 30: Stone, cyclist. Like most SGC graded (and PSA graded) N43s, the cards in this collection display far better than suggested by their technically accurate grades. This is a magnificent collection of one of card collecting's most classic issues. This collection represents 44% of the entire set, and is an ideal foundation for the building of a beautiful, entirely graded N43 Allen & Ginter set (which to date, according to the PSA and SGC Registries, has never yet been accomplished). This is an exceptionally sharp-looking group. Total 22 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$6,000. SOLD FOR $6,960.00
