1889 H600 J. D. Larkin "Presidents" Complete PSA-Graded Set (23)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,541

Complete twenty-three card set of H600 "Presidents" issued by J. D. Larkin. This colorful set of cards features a portrait of each President above a facsimile signature and an advertisement for "Sweet Home" soap, Larkin's primary product. Each card has been professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA. The PSA grading composite is as follows: NM 7 (1 card): Van Buren (MC). EX-MT 6 (2 cards): Arthur (MK) and Quincy Adams. EX+ 5.5 (3 cards): Fillmore, Pierce, and Tyler. EX 5 (7 cards): Buchanan, Grant (MC), Hayes, Lincoln, Monroe, Polk (MK), and Washington. VG-EX+ 4.5 (2 cards): Garfield and Johnson. VG-EX 4 (5 cards): Cleveland (MK), Harrison, Jefferson, Madison, and Taylor (MK). VG+ 3.5 (1 card): Harrison. GOOD 2 (1 card): Adams. Authentic (1 card): Jackson. Sets featuring all U.S. Presidents to date have always been very popular with card manufacturers (including Topps, Bowman, U.S. Caramel etc.), although most card sets of this type date from more recent years than this 1889 issue. This is a very attractive and rare complete set of this nineteenth-century nonsport "Presidents" set. Total: 23 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,541
