Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $1,508.00
Presented are two individual pages (out of nine in the set) from the 1888 Goodwin "Round Album." Both are Hall of Famer portrait pages: one featuring Mike "King" Kelly; the other John M. Ward. These are two of the most striking and desirable pages in the set. The reverse of each has the players' stats for the 1888 season and League schedules for the 1889 season. The Kelly page has some very minor surfaces wrinkles along the edges (which do not affect the image area), a tiny edge tear at 7:00, and a few spots of surface paper loss on the back. The Ward is nearly perfect on the front with one small area of paper loss on the reverse. Both are bright, crisp, and clean, each with a Mint appearance but with minor flaws as noted. These individual pages are extremely impressive examples of the finest color lithography of the era and are ideal for display. Diameter: each 8.25 inches. Total 2 pages. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,508.00
