Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $4,112.50

1888 N28 Allen & Ginter Champions collection of five baseball players (out of ten ballplayers in the set). Included among the five cards are four Hall of Famers. Each card has been graded by PSA. PSA Condition Report: Cap Anson (VG 3, rounded corners and light soiling, no creases), Charles Comiskey (VG-EX 4), Tim Keefe (VG-EX 4; very strong card, looks Ex, downgraded to VG-EX only due to a few extremely light spots on reverse), Joseph Mulvey (GOOD 2; great-looking card for the grade with Vg-Ex front, downgraded due to light moisture stain on reverse), and John Ward (VG-EX 4; we grade this card Vg/Vg-Ex). Allen & Ginters are widely recognized as one of the most classic of all pre-1900 issues. This is a very attractive medium-grade collection representing exactly half of the complete set of ballplayers (missing Bennett, Caruthers, Clarkson, Glasscock, and Kelly for completion) from this extremely popular nineteenth-century issue. Total 5 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $4,112.50
