1888 N28 Allen & Ginter John Sullivan SGC NM 84 - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $720

Graded NM 84 by SGC. Highest-graded example! N28 Allen & Ginter "World's Champions" is considered by many to be among the most beautiful of all nineteenth-century tobacco-card issues. The N28 set features champions and stars of the day from a wide variety of sports, and, aside from the ten baseball subjects, the ten boxers are the most highly prized and sought after by collectors. Presented is the key to the non-baseball subjects, boxer John Sullivan. The offered example is bright, crisp, and clean, with a perfectly white background, bold colors, sharp corners, and a flawless reverse. This is a tremendous example, worthy of the finest N28 set or boxing-card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $720
