1888 N28 Allen & Ginter Tim Keefe PSA EX-MT 6

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,560

Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA (submitted by REA). Exceptional high-grade N28 Allen & Ginter of Tim Keefe. Perfectly bright and clean, both front and back, with perfect registry and flawless colors. This tobacco card was issued at the peak of Keefe's Hall of Fame career. Keefe's 35 victories (against just 12 defeats) and 1.74 ERA both led the league in 1888. His records in previous years were equally impressive: 35 victories in 1887, 42 in 1886, 37 in 1885, 37 in 1884, and 41 in 1883. These seasons together, from 1883 to 1888, may have been the most dominating six seasons for any pitcher in any era. Keefe's total won-loss record for the six seasons was 222-108. He went on to win a total of 344 games in just 14 years (1880-1893). This is a stunning high-grade card of one of baseballs greatest pitching legends from one of the most popular of all nineteenth-century sets.  Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,560
