1887 N184 W. S. Kimball Champions Baseball Complete Set Minus 1 SGC-Graded (3 of 4)

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $2,115.00

Outstanding bright and clean collection of three different baseball players (out of only four ballplayers in the set) from the unusual and scarce 1887 N184 W. S. Kimball Champions, each graded and encapsulated by SGC. Missing only Burch for completion of all the ballplayers in the set. SGC Condition Report: Dell Darling (VG/EX 50), Hardie Henderson (VG/EX 50), and James O'Neil (EX 60). All three cards are bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, and no creases. The backs have some light even toning, relating to long-ago storage or possibly scrapbook removal, and are otherwise perfectly clean. Kimballs are considered by many to be one of the most beautiful of all the nineteenth-century tobacco issues. The set features champions and stars of the day from a wide variety of sports. Although the baseball players featured in the set are not Hall of Famers, each was a very popular star at the time. This is an exceptional group of three cards from one of the most stunning and beautifully designed of all nineteenth-century tobacco issues. Total 3 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $2,115.00
