    1888 N28 Allen & Ginter John Clarkson, Baseball PSA NM-MT 8. An extreme condition rarity by any standard, this N28 card features the Boston Nationals star hurler John Clarkson. Few 19th Century productions generate the level of head-turning excitement as do the two 50-card "World Champions" series produced by Allen & Ginter. The format is a magnificent complement of boldly printed portrait against a pure white background. The set coincides with Clarkson's first year with Boston. This is an opportunity to not only acquire a top-tier Hall of Famer in the likes of John Clarkson but one of the finest examples on record. The card has minor toning on the front, a slightly elevated level amount on the reverse. Corners show consistently modest amount of corner tip wear. An extremely close review shows a slight surface scratch in the lower right area seen, with some difficulty, on the reverse. Solid high-grade gem suited to single handedly elevate a vintage collection to "advanced" status. Graded PSA NM-MT 8, eight are graded NM-MT, there is one higher.
