1888 N36 Allen & Ginter "American Indians" SGC-Graded Pair

Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $711.00

Pair of N36 Allen & Ginter large-format "American Indians". By any measure, these are among the rarest and most beautiful of all nineteenth-century tobacco-card issues. It is not surprising that these cards have begun to attract serious attention, long overdue, from advanced collectors. We have submitted both of these cards to graded by SGC. The two cards, Chief Joseph and Young Black Dog, are each graded VG+ 45 by SGC due to a tiny area of paper loss on the reverse but present at a far superior level. Issued in 1888, N36s are one of the rarest of all the Allen & Ginter sets. They feature the same subjects and designs as the smaller N2 Allen & Ginters, but in a larger format and with extra background artwork included in each card's design. Measuring approximately 2.75 x 3.25 inches, the large-format N36 Allen & Ginters are widely recognized as one of the most attractive and highly prized card sets ever issued. This is a very clean and attractive pair of these rare and popular nineteenth-century tobacco cards. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $100. Estimate $300+. SOLD FOR $711.00
