Collection of three different baseball cards from the N43 Allen & Ginters large-format second series Worlds Champions. All three cards have been encapsulated by PSA. Comprised of: John Morrell (VG-EX 4 [MK]), Jas. H. Fogarty (Authentic, back is skinned, mislabeled as N29), and Chas. H. Getzin (Authentic, back is skinned and right border is trimmed, mislabeled as N29). N43s are the rarest of the three Allen & Ginter "Champions" sets. They feature the same subjects and designs as the smaller N29 second series Allen & Ginters, but in a larger format and with extra background artwork added to each card's design. Measuring approximately 2.75 x 3.25 inches, the large-format N43 Allen & Ginters are widely recognized as one of the most attractive sets ever issued. The set features champions and stars of the day from a variety of sports. Three of the six baseball players in the N43 Allen & Ginter set; one in fairly high grade (PSA 4 MK), and two low-grade (Authentic) but still very attractive cards. Total: 3 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $711
