1888 N162 Goodwin Champions "King" Kelly SGC EX/NM 80
Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $9,400.00
Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. Presented is an outstanding N162 example of Hall of Famer Mike "King" Kelly, one the key cards from this very popular and colorful set of fifty, issued by Old Judge and Gypsy Queen Cigarettes. When advanced collectors discuss their favorite cards and sets of all time, the rarity and beauty of N162s usually puts the issue near the top of any list. This card of Mike Kelly in particular is universally recognized as one of the great classics of nineteenth-century baseball cards. This is a beautiful card! The striking Ex-Mt example is bright and clean, with flawless colors and perfect registration. The card appears at a glance even stronger than its appropriate Ex-Mt SGC grade, and appears to have been downgraded due to having slightly more wear on the upper right corner and light edge wear on the reverse. This is a magnificent high-grade example of one of the most classic of all nineteenth-century baseball cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $9,400.00
