Collection of forty different (plus one duplicate) of the fifty cards comprising the N28 Allen & Ginter "World's Champions" set. N28 Allen & Ginter "World's Champions" are considered by many to be among the most beautiful of all nineteenth-century tobacco-card issues. The set features champions and stars of the day from a wide variety of sports. This collection represents a complete set of the forty non-baseball players in the N28 Allen & Ginter set. The condition is: 15% Vg-Ex to Ex, 10% Vg, 20% Gd, 30% Fr, and 25% Pr (including a couple altered). This is an outstanding collection of one of card collecting's most classic issues. The baseball players are often actually easier to find in this issue than the non-baseball players, precisely because they are so much more expensive. Here, much of the work of assembling the set has been done, and all that is needed are the ten baseball players for completion. These forty cards represent an ideal foundation for the building of an N28 Allen & Ginter set. Total: 41 cards (40 different plus one duplicate). Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+.
