1888 A16 Allen & Ginter World's Champions Album Page with Anson, Keefe, and Kelly

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $540

The 1888 A16 Allen & Ginter World's Champions album featured all fifty cards from the N28 Allen & Ginter set, including ten baseball players and nine boxers. Offered here is one page (perhaps the most desirable) from that album, picturing the card images of Tim Keefe, Mike Kelly, Cap Anson, and Charlie Bennett. Given the beautiful illustrations and full-color lithographic design of the album, the individual pages naturally make for exceptional display pieces. The offered page, featuring four of the ten baseball players in the issue (including three Hall of Famers), is no exception and has been matted and framed for optimal wall display. The page (6 x 8 inches) displays three normal binding holes along the left border, as issued (the pages of the album were bound with string), with one of the holes displaying a minor tear. Otherwise, the page is in apparent Near Mint condition. Total dimensions: 11.5 x 13.5 inches.
