1887 N690 Kalamazoo Bats Larry Corcoran, NY's

Starting Bid - $5,000.00 , Sold For - $26,437.50

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Extraordinary newly discovered Kalamazoo Bats example of Larry Corcoran. This card is one of an exciting recent find of high-grade New York Giants player Kalamazoo Bats. In the past, all of the high-grade New York player Kalamazoo Bats cards known to exist originated from a single legendary find in 1987 that included approximately ten New York players. It is remarkable that a new find of these great rarities, even a small find of just three cards, has surfaced at this late date. Each of the three cards is offered as a separate lot in this auction. The cards from this new, small but incredible find are so fresh and crisp they could easily be mistaken for examples from the 1987 find. New York players are among the rarest of all nineteenth-century baseball cards. In most cases, only two or three examples are known of each, and in some cases only a single example is known. Each of the newly discovered cards is only the second confirmed example of that player known to exist. This card is bright, fresh, crisp, perfectly clean, both front and back, with four razor-sharp corners, and flawless contrast. Centered slightly to the left, and with a small surface chip in the border in the upper right, it's otherwise in Near Mint condition. Reserve $5,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $26,437.50
