    1887 N28 Allen & Ginter "World's Champions" Complete Set (50) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! Offered is a 50-card complete set of N28 Allen & Ginter's "The World's Champions" from 1887/88. For most hobbyists, this set serves as an introduction to the amazing world of 19th century tobacco insert cards. The roster features 10 baseball players plus 40 other subjects, including Pugilists, Billiard Players, Pool Players, Oarsmen, Rifle Shooters and Wrestlers. It would take a considerably long time and a great amount of effort to assemble a matching set of this quality. Every card has been graded EX to NM/MT+ by SGC. These are the same cards that comprise the #1 set on the SGC Legacy Registry. The cards have been reviewed and now have an un-adjusted GPA of 6.93! This set is #1 by a very healthy margin and will more than likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Includes: SGC NM/MT+ 8.5: 1 card, Dempsey; SGC NM/MT 8: 6 cards, Acton, Dion, Lannon, McAuliffe, Ross, Weir; SGC NM+ 7.5: 10 cards, Beach, Bogardus, Bubear, Carver, Buffalo Bill Cody, Hamm, Hanlan, Slosson, Sorakichi, Trickett; SGC NM 7: 18 cards, Bauer, Bennett, Carney, Carroll, Caruthers, Daly, Kilrain, Malone, McKay, McLaughlin, McMahon, Mitchell, Muldoon, Mulvey, Smith, Sullivan, Vignaux and Ward; SGC EX/NM+ 6.5: 2 cards, Gaudaur and Annie Oakley; SGC EX/NM 6: 11 cards, Adams, Anson, Bibby, Frey, Glasscock, Hosmer, Keefe, Kelly, Schaefer, Sexton and Teemer; SGC EX 5: 2 cards, Clarkson and Comiskey.
