1888 N28 Allen & Ginter Cap Anson

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,643.75

Graded EX 5 by PSA. A very attractive high-grade example of Cap Anson, the key card from the popular N28 Allen & Ginter World’s Champions series. This is a particularly striking example of one of the most recognizable cards in all of collecting. The card is crisp and clean, with even wear to the corners, rich colors, perfect centering, and perfect registration. The reverse is also bright and clean. The card simply displays beautifully. As 1910-era tobacco cards of Hall of Famers have risen in value in recent years, we can't help but notice that Hall of Famers from key earlier-issued sets such as Allen & Ginter appear to represent an impressive value in comparison. This is a very attractive example of one of the most classic of all nineteenth-century baseball cards. SMR value for the assigned grade is $2,200. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,643.75
