1888 N162 Goodwin Champions Tim Keefe SGC EX/NM 80

Starting Bid - $1,500, Sold For - $4,500

Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. One of only two examples graded at this level with a single card graded higher!

This striking example features a portrait of Keefe, one of the nineteenth century's most legendary pitchers. This is a beautiful card! Bright and clean, with flawless colors and perfect registration, and just the slightest touches of corner wear. Bold checklist reverse. This is a particularly outstanding example of one of the era's most prominent Hall of Famers from one of card collecting's most classic and highly regarded nineteenth-century issues. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000+.
