1887 N284 Buchner Gold Coin John Ward - SGC NM 84

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $940

Graded NM 84 by SGC. Highest-graded example by SGC! Magnificent high-grade example of Hall of Famer John Ward in a fielding pose from the popular N284 Buchner Gold Coin series. The card displays just the slightest hint of light wear on the square corners, brilliant colors, flawless registration, and perfect centering. The reverse has some very light scattered tobacco staining (of little or no consequence). Buchners are unusual in that they feature generic illustrations of the ballplayers rather than the actual likeness of the identified player. This is a stunning Hall of Famer example from the Buchner set, one of the few full-color baseball-card sets of the nineteenth century, and one of the most artistically interesting, distinctive, and classic baseball-card sets of the 1880s. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $940
