Graded NM 84 by SGC. One of just four examples graded at this level by SGC, with only two cards graded higher. Exceptionally attractive high-grade N28 Allen & Ginter of legendary Hall of Famer John Ward. Bright and clean, both front and back, with four sharp corners displaying just a hint of wear. This is just a great-looking card in all respects. Only the most minute edge wear visible on the reverse may be keeping this beauty from receiving a higher grade from SGC. This is a stunning high-grade card of one of baseball's greatest legends from one of the most popular of all nineteenth-century sets. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $2,644
