1895 N300 Mayo's Cut Plug Cap Anson

Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $3,525.00

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. One of only five examples graded at this level by PSA. Outstanding N300 Mayo's Cut Plug of Hall of Famer Cap Anson. This is a particularly significant nineteenth-century card as Mayo is one of the very few sets featuring Cap Anson from his playing days. While he was the premier player of his day, for some reason Anson is represented by only two poses in the N172 Old Judge series (and one of those, of course, is the incredibly rare "Anson in uniform" pose, of which there are only several known examples). Bright and crisp, with a flawless portrait image, and with only the slightest wear to the extremely condition-sensitive edges and corners. The card is centered 30/70 left to right, with a very light surface wrinkle which starts at the top border and runs diagonal to touch Anson’s mustache, and a slight "diamond" cut. The back is virtually perfect. This is a very impressive and, for Mayo's, a very high-grade example of one of Cap Anson's most desirable cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $3,525.00
