1889 N338-2 S. F. Hess Roger Connor

Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $10,440.00

Graded EX 60 by SGC. Extremely rare sample card of Hall of Famer Roger Connor from the 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. This is an exceptionally high-grade example of Roger Connor, one of the key Hall of Famers in the set, with superb photo quality, and just a hint of wear at the corners. Crisp and clean, front and back. A top quality example of a major Hall of Famer from N338-2 S. F. Hess Cigarettes, one of the rarest of all nineteenth-century baseball card sets. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$6,000. SOLD FOR $10,440.00
