Graded NM 84 by SGC. This is the highest grade ever awarded to a W600 by SGC. (It is one of six graded NM 84 with none graded higher.) Magnificent ultra high-grade example of Fielder Jones from the W600 Sporting Life cabinet-card set. W600s are one of the rarest sets from the early part of the century, and are one of the most substantial and well-made card sets ever produced. With good reason, they have always been highly prized by serious collectors. Bright, crisp, and perfectly clean, front and back, with square corners, flawless surface, and a bold image. The reverse is perfectly clean with only light wear showing on the upper and lower left corners (mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy). This is a very striking high-grade example from one of the most important of all nineteenth-century sets, which would be a significant addition to any serious sample or prewar card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,645
