1895 N300 Mayo's Cut Plug Cap Anson

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $4,350.00

Graded VG 40 by SGC. N300 Mayo's Cut Plug of Hall of Famer Cap Anson. This is a particularly significant nineteenth-century card as Mayo is one of the very few sets featuring Cap Anson from his playing days. While he was the premier player of his day, for some reason Anson is represented by only two poses in the N172 Old Judge series (and one of those, of course, is the incredibly rare "Anson in uniform" pose, of which there are only several known examples). Bright and clean, with no creases, and with only slight wear to the extremely condition-sensitive edges and corners. Close examination of the reverse reveals a very small, insignificant area of clear glue residue which is responsible for the extremely conservative SGC grade. This card has a Vg-Ex/Ex appearance. This is an outstanding example of one of Cap Anson's most desirable cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $4,350.00
