1888 N28 Allen Ginter John Clarkson - PSA MINT 9 - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $7,638

Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Highest-graded example by PSA or SGC! In fact, out of 3,103 cards from the N28 Allen & Ginter set graded in the history of PSA, as of this date only twelve have been graded PSA MINT 9 and none have been graded PSA GEM MINT 10. Extraordinary ultra high-grade N28 Allen & Ginter of legendary Hall of Famer John Clarkson. This card is a gem! It is also the first PSA MINT 9 N28 Allen & Ginter of any player (let alone a Hall of Famer) we have ever offered. Perfectly bright and clean, both front and back, with four razor-sharp corners, perfect registry, flawless colors, and centered just a hint to the left. This is simply an amazing card in all respects. Clarkson finished the 1887 season with Chicago, and signed with Boston for the upcoming season. This card features Clarkson in a Boston uniform. Nineteenth-century cards are rarely seen in such high grade from any set. This is a stunning ultra high-grade card of one of baseball's greatest pitching legends from one of the most popular of all nineteenth-century sets, and would be a highlight in any world-class vintage-card collection. SMR value is $12,000. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000++. SOLD FOR $7,638
