Collection of eight different 1880s H804-8 Sporting Life trade cards, all but one of which features a comical baseball scene. Seven of the cards feature advertising for Sporting Life on the reverse. Three of the cards measure as issued (2.75 x 5.75 inches), while five have been trimmed along all four borders (each approximately 2.5 x 4 inches) One of the cards has been graded 20 Fair by SGC (due to paper loss on the reverse; otherwise it displays as Ex). Without regard to the trimming on the five cards, the remainder range from Fair to Very Good, averaging Good. Total: 8 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
