1887 N175 Large Gypsy Queen Danny Richardson

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $9,600

Graded VG/EX+ 55 by SGC (submitted by REA). Incredibly rare sample card from the large (2 x 3.5 inches) Gypsy Queen set of New York Giants second baseman Danny Richardson. Gypsy Queen was one of Goodwin's tobacco brands. These rare Large Gypsy Queens should not be confused with the smaller N172 Gypsy Queens (which are the size of standard Old Judges). The larger Gypsy Queens are among the rarest of all pre-1900 card issues. In fact, REA has not had a large N175 example to offer since 2004! There are only nine different large Gypsy Queens known to exist. This is an exceptional nineteenth-century rarity, and a simply stunning example of one of card collecting's toughest sample cards. Very high grade, with light wear at the corners and superb contrast, the reverse is clean, with only a very small stain present in the upper right (mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy). This tremendous example would be a significant highlight in even the most advanced world-class nineteenth-century or type-card collection. From the Dan Gantt Collection.
Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+. SOLD FOR $9,600
