1888 N162 Goodwin Champions Complete PSA- and SGC-Graded Set of Baseball Players (8)
Starting Bid - $1,500, Sold For - $5,700
Presented is an extremely attractive complete set of all eight baseball players from the 1888 N162 Goodwin Champions set, considered by many to be the single most beautiful of all the nineteenth-century tobacco issues. Each card is graded and encapsulated by SGC (six) or PSA (two). Of the eight ballplayers in the set, four are Hall of Famers (Anson, Brouthers, Keefe, Kelly) and three others were major stars of the day (Caruthers, Dunlap, Glasscock). Ed Andrews was very popular in Philadelphia but was not a star. Condition Report: Ed Andrews (SGC GOOD+ 35), Cap Anson (HOF, PSA GOOD 2, brilliant colors, even corner wear, small surface flake near the left border), Dan Brouthers (HOF, PSA VG-EX 4 [MC]), Bob Caruthers (SGC VG 40), "Sure Shot" Dunlap (SGC FAIR 20), Jack Glasscock (SGC GOOD 30), Tim Keefe (HOF, SGC VG+ 45), and Mike "King" Kelly (HOF, SGC VG 40). This is a beautiful complete set of one of the most desirable of all nineteenth-century baseball issues. The equivalent SMR value for the assigned grades (excluding the one qualified card and factoring in the three half grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $4,900. Total: 8 cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000++. SOLD FOR $5,700
