    Description

    1887 N28 Allen & Ginter Cap Anson SGC 88 NM/MT. Cap Anson was one of baseball's first superstars. Not just a member of the 3,000 Hits Club, he was the founding member of the selective fraternity which set the standard for future excellence. His handlebar mustache and steely look of determination helps captivate the viewer as one gazes upon this quintessential Victorian era issue. It is no wonder the N28 edition is arguably the most popular of the 19th Century tobacco insert sets. The card offers a frosty white field which surrounds Caps' boldly printed waist-high portrait. Remarkably sharp corners and an overall absence of noteworthy wear on par with a SGC 88 NM/MT rating. Regardless of the grade, it is a great example of the set's most desirable and valuable subject.
