Outstanding collection of fifteen different nineteenth-century boxing cards from two classic issues. 1-7) 1888 N28 Allen & Ginter Champions: Acton (Fr), Bubear (Gd), McAuliffe (Pr-Fr), Sorakichi (Fr), Smith (Gd), McMahon (Fr), and Schaefer (Fr). All seven cards present as Ex to Ex-Mt on fronts, but are downgraded due to paper loss and/or glue stains on the reverse. 8-17) 1890 N310 Mayo Cut Plug Boxing: Carney (name at top, Vg), Daley (name at top, Vg+), Fitzsimmons (name at bottom, next card shows, otherwise Vg+), Godfrey (name at bottom, Vg), Leonard (name at top, Vg-Ex), Maher (name at top, Gd), McAuliffe (name at top, Vg), and Sullivan (name at top, Gd+). N310 Mayo Boxers are one of the earliest and rarest of all boxing issues. This is a small but desirable collection of cards from these popular boxing-card sets. Total: 15 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
