1887 N690 Kalamazoo Bats Ed Andrews
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $5,875
Graded EX+ 70 by SGC. High-grade Kalamazoo Bats tobacco card of A's outfielder Ed Andrews. Kalamazoo Bats are revered for their great rarity, unusual outdoor poses, unusual size, and unique design. This is an outstanding example, extremely high grade for Kalamazoo Bats, that perfectly showcases the great appeal of this rare nineteenth-century tobacco issue. Extremely clean, both front and back, with exceptional contrast, and virtually perfect centering. The photo is particularly strong, and with an abundance of interesting details that Kalamazoos are so well known for (such as the bleachers in the background, Andrews' classic nineteenth-century mustache, pillbox cap, and uniform suspenders hanging at his sides). This is an ideal sample card in extremely high grade from one of the nineteenth century's most fascinating and highly prized sets. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $5,875
