1895 N300 Mayo's Cut Plug John Ward - Retired
Starting Bid - $2,000.00 , Sold For - $5,581.25
Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC, the only example at that level, with none graded higher. Absolutely stunning super high-grade N300 Mayo's Cut Plug of Hall of Famer John Ward. This is an incredible example of one of John Ward's most striking cards. Stunning in all respects, bright and clean, both front and back, with only the slightest hint of white showing in the top two corners and the lower edge, and slightly more but still a very minor amount of white in the lower right corner. This is an especially fascinating card in that this example lists Ward as "John Ward: Retired." When Ward's card was first issued by Mayo, it listed him as "John Ward: 2nd B.," but when he retired prior to the 1895 season, Mayo changed Ward's position status from "Second Base" to "Retired." This is a spectacular high-grade example, the finest we have ever seen, of one of John Ward's most majestic and classic cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$6,000+. SOLD FOR $5,581.25
