1888 N338-2 S. F. Hess Mike Slattery

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $7,200

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Extremely rare sample card of Mike Slattery of the New York Giants from the 1888 N338-2 S. F. Hess tobacco set, one of the most elusive of all pre-1900 card issues. The S. F. Hess series features primarily New York Giants players. Of the twenty-three subjects known to date, sixteen are members of the Giants, champions of the National League in 1888 and 1889. The offered example is only one of two cards of Slattery graded by SGC to date (the other grades FAIR 20). This is an extremely attractive example, with superb photo quality, and light, even wear at the corners. Crisp and clean, front and back. An exceptional top-quality example from one of the nineteenth century's rarest baseball-card sets. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $7,200
