1888 N28 Allen & Ginter PSA- and SGC-Graded Near-Complete Set of Non-Baseball Players (38/40)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,370
Collection of thirty-eight different of the fifty cards comprising the N28 Allen & Ginter "World's Champions" set, entirely graded and encapsulated (twenty-eight SGC and ten PSA). N28 Allen & Ginter "World's Champions" is considered by many to be among the most beautiful of all nineteenth-century tobacco-card issues. The set features champions and stars of the day from a wide variety of sports. This collection represents a near-complete set of all forty non-baseball players in the N28 Allen & Ginter set (missing only Cody and Oakley for completion). The baseball players are offered elsewhere in the auction. This very attractive group is in mid to high grade and features many notable highlights, including the complete subset of all ten boxers. This collection consists of the following: EX/NM 80 (10 cards): Adams (PSA), Bibby (PSA), Dion, Gaudaur, Lannon, McKay, McLaughlin, Muldoon, Smith, and Vignaux. EX+ 70 (6 cards): Beach, Carroll, Frey, Ross, Sexton, and Trickett. EX 60 (9 cards): Acton (PSA), Bauer, Bogardus (PSA), Carver (PSA), Daly (PSA), Dempsey (PSA), Kilrain, Mitchell, and Slosson (PSA). VG/EX 50 (12 cards): Bubear, Carney (PSA), Hamm, Hanlan, Hosmer, McAuliffe, McMahon, Schaefer, Sorakichi, Sullivan (PSA), Teemer, and Weir. FAIR 20 (1 card): Malone. The baseball players are often actually easier to find in this issue than the non-baseball players, precisely because they are so much more expensive. This magnificent collection of thirty-eight cards from one of card collecting's most classic issues represents an ideal foundation for the building of a complete N28 Allen & Ginter set. Total: 38 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $2,370
