1888 N43 Allen & Ginter Buck Ewing
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,600
Graded EX 5 by PSA. High-grade example of Hall of Famer Buck Ewing (New York Giants) from the large-size N43 Allen & Ginter "World's Champions" series. The N43 series, the rarest of the three Allen & Ginter "Champions" sets, feature the same subjects and designs as the smaller N29 second series Allen & Ginters, but in a larger format and with extra background artwork added to each card's design. Measuring approximately 3 x 3.25 inches, the N43 Allen & Ginters are widely recognized as one of the most attractive sets ever issued. Ewing is the key card from the set. This is an extremely attractive example! The front displays brilliant colors, excellent centering, and very light touches of wear at the corners. A small, unobtrusive, age spot is visible on the left panel. Clean reverse. An outstanding high-grade example of this key pre-1900 rarity that would be a significant addition to any advanced prewar-card or Hall of Fame collection. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+.
