1888 N28 Allen & Ginter Baseball Collection (6 cards)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,997.50
1888 N28 Allen & Ginter "World's Champions" collection of six baseball players (out of ten ballplayers in the set) including two Hall of Famers. The six cards are Chas. Bennett (SGC FAIR 20), R. L. Caruthers (GAI VG+ 3.5, clean card with a strong crease in the lower left corner), Jack Glasscock (PSA EX 5), Timothy Keefe (SGC VG 40, corner wear and some edge toning, otherwise clean and with no creases), Mike Kelly (encapsulated as "Authentic" by PSA, this card has a slight trim but it is still a beautiful-looking original card with an apparent Nr/Mt-Mt appearance), and Joseph Mulvey (PSA VG 3 [MK], has earned "MK" due to a few very unobtrusive spots of paper loss on reverse). Allen & Ginter's are widely recognized as one of the most classic of all pre-1900 issues. This is a very clean and attractive partial set of this extremely popular nineteenth-century issue (missing only Anson, Clarkson, Comiskey, and Ward for completion), with an overall appearance far superior to the technically accurate assigned grades. Total 6 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,997.50
