1888 A36 Goodwin Champions Album

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $3,190.00

1888 A36 Goodwin & Co. Album features images of all 50 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 42 stars of the sporting world. The N162 Old Judge & Gypsy Queen tobacco cards featured in this album are universally regarded as one of 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 only be obtained by mail in exchange for coupons packed with Old Judge & Gypsy Queen brand tobacco. The back cover of the album has a light crease and some minor paper loss flaking (which is very common with this album) affecting less than one percent of the surface area of the back cover, including a small area of Kelly's chest and Dunlap's neck. The back cover is otherwise in Excellent condition. The interior pages and front cover are extremely bright and fresh without any flaking, surface chipping or other flaws that are so common with this premium album. The front cover is in Excellent condition. The interior pages are Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt. An extremely attractive, fresh, clean example of this nineteenth-century classic, in far superior condition than usually found.Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $3,190.00
