    Description

    1888 N338-2 S.F. Hess Pat Murphy SGC 40 VG 3. From the Carolinas collection. This is the only N338-2 of Pat Murphy on record for both SGC and PSA population reports! Another great rarity of 19th Century baseball tobacco cards are the S.F. Hess promotions. This series features baseball players from the Giants, Mets plus a few St. Louis and Detroit subjects. The census reports for both PSA and SGC show a combined 34 total N338-2 submissions to date. Pat Murphy was just a backup catcher for four season (1887-1980) here his card will have "HoF" status for the lucky new owner. Graded SGC 40 VG 3, the card has a nice image, a slight spot of surface loss on the blank reverse and consistent corner wear. This all matters not a single bit as there are probably less than a handful still exist and this is the first time one has been been made available at auction.
