1895 N300 Mayo Cut Plug Kid Nichols SGC EX 60

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $5,400

Graded EX 60 by SGC. Only two examples grade higher! Presented is a stunning 1895 N300 Mayo Cut Plug example of Hall of Famer Kid Nichols. Extremely sharp-looking card with an outstanding image, perfect clarity, and no creases. The card has some light edge and corner wear, as is always the case with Mayos. In addition to being one of the key Hall of Famers in the set, this is also a fascinating card since it was issued several years after Nichols finished the 1889 season with Omaha, and signed with Boston in 1890. There were not yet any photographs of Nichols in a Boston uniform available, so Mayo took a photo of Nichols in his Omaha uniform and had the art department add "Boston" onto his uniform. On close examination of the photograph this is easily seen. This is an extremely attractive example of one of Nichols' most impressive cards, and one of the most desirable Hall of Famers in the Mayo's series. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500++. SOLD FOR $5,400
