Description

    1887 N28 Allen & Ginter Charles Comiskey PSA NM-MT 8.
    He's best remembered--and enshrined at Cooperstown--for his three decades as founder and owner of the Chicago White Sox, but the 1919 World Series scandal was still more than three decades ahead when this baby-faced Commie emerged from a pack of Allen & Ginter's cigarettes. He appears as a twenty-seven-year old first baseman for the St. Louis Browns, the American Association Champions who would fall ten games to five in a postseason meeting with the National League Champion Detroit Wolverines.

    Thirteen decades is an extraordinarily long term of survival for a trading card, so it should come as no surprise that this NM-MT 8 specimen stands at the top of the PSA population, joined by just three others with none superior. In fact, in over 4,000 submissions from the entirety of the N28 issue, only a dozen have ever earned a higher assessment. With bright colors, crisp registration, and barely a hint of handling or storage wear, this is a time machine back to the early years of the professional game.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $20,000 - up.
