Starting Bid - $1,500, Sold For - $6,000

1888 N28 Allen & Ginter "World's Champions" complete set of ten baseball players, including six Hall of Famers (Anson, Clarkson, Comiskey, Keefe, Kelly, and Ward), all graded and encapsulated by SGC (submitted by REA). This set has been beautifully preserved in the family of a noncollector for decades. The balance of the set (the forty non-baseball players) is presented elsewhere in this auction. SGC Condition Report: Cap Anson (VG 40), Chas. Bennett (GOOD+ 35), R. L. Caruthers (VG 40), John Clarkson (EX 60), Charles Comiskey (GOOD+ 35), Jack Glasscock (EX 60), Tim Keefe (VG+ 45), Mike Kelly (VG/EX+ 55), Joseph Mulvey (VG 40), and John Ward (EX 60). Allen & Ginters are universally recognized as one of the most classic of all pre-1900 issues. This is a very attractive complete set of this extremely popular nineteenth-century issue. The total SMR value in the assigned grades (factoring in the four half-grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $4,975. Total: 10 cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000+. SOLD FOR $6,000
