1888 N2 Allen & Ginter American Indian Chiefs Complete SGC-Graded Set (50)
Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $2,937.50
Complete set of all fifty 1888 N2 Allen & Ginter American Indian Chiefs cards, entirely graded by SGC. Issued by the Allen & Ginter Tobacco Company, one card was inserted with each package of Allen & Ginter cigarettes. One of the most popular of all ninteenth-century nonsport issues, this colorful set features many of the most legendary American Indian chiefs. Included are Geronimo, Red Cloud, Sitting Bull, Chief Joseph, and many more. It is fascinating to note that the great Indian chiefs featured were not ancient historical figures when the set came out, but then-current legends, and most (maybe all) were still alive when this set was issued. The cards each measure approximately 1-1/2 x 2-3/4 inches and a checklist for the entire set appears on the reverse. SGC Condition Composite: Two EX+ 70, six EX 60 including Chief Joseph, thirteen VG/EX 50, nine VG 40 including Red Cloud, six GOOD 30, two FAIR 20, eight POOR 10 including Geronimo, and four Authentic including Sitting Bull. This is one of the premier sets featuring Indians, which has always been a popular area of collecting. This is a very attractive mixed-grade set. Total 50 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $2,937.50
