Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,819

1888 N28 Allen & Ginter "World's Champions" complete set of ten baseball players including six Hall of Famers (Anson, Clarkson, Comiskey, Keefe, Kelly, and Ward), all graded by SGC. SGC Condition Report: Cap Anson (GOOD 30, nice-looking card with Vg-Ex appearance, downgraded due to light stains along the left and right edges, and one tiny surface chip on chest; great-looking card for the grade), Chas. Bennett (FAIR 20, Vg front, downgraded due to minor back damage), R. L. Caruthers (VG 40), John Clarkson (GOOD 30, downgraded primarily due to a heavy crease which breaks surface), Charles Comiskey (FAIR 20, front is Gd-Vg, downgraded due to minor back damage), Jack Glasscock (VG/EX 50), Tim Keefe (VG/EX 50, front has Ex appearance, downgraded due to very light glue stain on reverse), Mike Kelly (GOOD 30, front is Vg, downgraded due to a stain on the reverse, no paper loss), Joseph Mulvey (EX 60), and John Ward (POOR 10, paper loss on face, this one card is a filler). Allen & Ginters are widely recognized as one of the most classic of all pre-1900 issues. This is a very attractive medium-grade complete set of this extremely popular nineteenth-century issue, with many cards having an overall appearance far superior to the technically accurate assigned grades. Total 10 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,819
