1888 A36 Goodwin Champions Album featuring images of all fifty cards from the spectacularly colorful N162 Old Judge & Gypsy Queen series. Baseball players include Anson, Kelly, Keefe, Brouthers, Glasscock, Caruthers, Dunlap, and Andrews. Also included are the additional forty-two stars of the sporting world. The N162 Old Judge & Gypsy Queen tobacco cards featured in this album are universally regarded as among the most beautiful and desirable of all pre-1900 tobacco issues. While the N162 cards were issued in packs with tobacco, the far rarer premium albums could be obtained only by mail in exchange for coupons packed with Old Judge & Gypsy Queen brand tobacco. The front and back covers of the album have a few very minor creases; otherwise they are both in Excellent condition. The interior pages are extremely bright and fresh without any flaking, surface chipping, or other flaws that are so common with this premium album. An extremely attractive, spectacularly fresh, clean example of this nineteenth-century classic, in a condition far superior to most examples of this album. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
