1887 N175 Large Gypsy Queen Denny

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $5,750.00

Extremely rare sample card from the large (2 x 3.5 inch) Gypsy Queen set of third baseman Denny of Indianapolis. 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 scarcest of all pre-1900 card issues. There are only nine different large Gypsy Queens known to exist. This is an exceptional nineteenth-century rarity, and one of card collecting's toughest sample cards. Very high grade, with square corners and excellent contrast, the reverse is clean but for the sake of accuracy we must note that the back does have two small tape marks, apparently the remnants from long ago being carefully mounted into an album or a display, otherwise in Excellent to Mint condition. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $5,750.00
