1888 N29 Allen & Ginter Baseball Near-Complete Set SGC-Graded (5 of 6)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $3,231.25

Near-complete set includes five different of the six baseball players from the 1888 N29 Allen & Ginter second series World's Champions set (missing only Ewing for completion), each graded by SGC. SGC Condition Report: Jas. H. Fogarty (EX 60), Chas. H. Getzin (VG/EX 50), Geo. F. Miller (EX+ 70), John Morrell (EX 60), and James Ryan (EX/NM 80). The N29 Allen & Ginter set has always been recognized as far rarer than the first series N28 Allen & Ginter Champions. This is a very attractive collection of five cards (representing five of the six baseball players) from this highly-prized set, which has always been considered to be among the most beautiful of all the nineteenth-century tobacco issues. Also included is an N43 Allen & Ginter of Chas. Getzin (pinhole in the middle, otherwise Vg). Total 6 cards (5 N29s and 1 N43). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $3,231.25
