1895 N300 Mayo's Cut Plug Arlie Latham
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,645.00
Graded NM 84 by SGC. Highest-graded example! Stunning ultra high grade Mayo example of third baseman Arlie Latham of the Cincinnati Reds of the National League. This is an incredible card, one of the highest-graded Mayo's Cut Plug tobacco cards ever. Of the almost 800 Mayo's of all players combined ever graded to date by SGC, only three have been graded higher (one NM+ 86 and two NM-MT 88), and only eight (including this example) have ever been graded at this same NM 84 level. The population report numbers speak for themselves, and so does the card: Bright, crisp, and clean, with a flawless surface, perfect contrast, four sharp corners, with just the very slightest hint of barely detectable edge wear, and centered slightly to the left. The reverse of the card is also perfectly clean and flawless. Literally one of the finest examples in the world from the extremely condition-sensitive Mayo's set. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,645.00
