Description

    1888 N162 Goodwin Champions Tim Keefe/Baseball PSA NM-MT 8 - Pop Two, None Higher. Tim Keefe was a feared competitor who is credited with having the first great change-up in baseball. One of the game's first 300 game winners, "Smiling Tim" shows off his Hall of Fame form upon this 125-year old issue. From 1883 to 1888 he won at least 32 games each season. Keefe pitched two complete game victories in a single day, allowing just three hits over eighteen innings of work making him a logical inclusion within one of the most gorgeous and collectible Victorian era trading card sets ever produced. The 1964 posthumous Hall of Fame inductee strikes a somewhat menacing glare on his N162 "Champions" card that has unusually clean surfaces and rich hues. Most surviving cards from this set are typically plagued by major condition issues. The opportunity to own one that still retains visual appeal that hasn't diminished in the last 125 years is a rare treat. The stunning lithography is a case study in precision resulting is a portrait that almost seems 3-dimensional. Overall corner wear is mainly limited to the top two corners. Graded PSA NM-MT 8, one of two graded NM-MT with PSA, there are none graded higher.
