Graded EX 60 by SGC. Exceptionally attractive mid-grade N28 Allen & Ginter of legendary Hall of Famer John Clarkson. Perfectly bright and clean, both front and back, with four square corners, perfect registry, and flawless colors. This is just a great-looking card in all respects. Only the most minute spots of paper flaking on Clarkson’s face keep this beauty from receiving a higher grade from SGC. This card features Clarkson in a Boston uniform and was therefore issued after Clarkson finished the 1887 season with Chicago, and signed with Boston for the upcoming season. This is a stunning mid-grade card of one of baseball’s greatest pitching legends from one of the most popular of all nineteenth-century sets. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
