1888 N28 Allen & Ginter Mike Kelly

Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $1,997.50

Graded EX 5 by PSA. Magnificent high-grade 1888 N28 Allen & Ginter of Mike "King" Kelly displays four sharp corners with perfect registry and flawless colors. The reverse is also crisp and perfectly clean. The card was apparently downgraded by PSA due to the most insignificant chip of surface paper loss (approximately the size of a pin head) near the center of the bottom edge. This is extremely minor but the only factor which we can see which could keep this gem from easily grading Near Mint. Nineteenth-century cards are rarely found this sharp. The quality of the artwork, pose, and stature of Mike "King" Kelly has always made this card one of the great classics of the Allen & Ginter set and of all pre-1900 baseball cards. This is an exceptional high-grade example of one of the nineteenth century's most popular Hall of Famers. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,997.50
