    Description

    1888 N403 Yum Yum Tobacco Roger Connor SGC Authentic. From the Carolina collection. The most challenging and rewarding genre of baseball card collecting is the rarified world of the late 19th century. Presented is a key card from series known as the N403 Yum Yum Tobacco issue. The cards are considered tremendously rare even by Victorian-era standards. Little is known about the endangered Yum Yum beyond the Chicago, IL derivation from August Beck & Co., but there is no mystery about the extreme rarity. We do know there are over fifty subjects cataloged, with only a total of 92 cards graded by both SGC and PSA services. Why these treasured collectibles are so exceedingly difficult to find seemingly rests with a redemption offer. Offered is an extremely rare N403 Yum Yum of early home run king and HoFer Roger Connor (1853-1931) who was the premier slugger of his era. His 138 career home runs over eighteen seasons set the benchmark which stood until a man named Ruth raised the bar to seemingly astronomical new heights. The card was at one time in three pieces and has tape front/back holding it together. Graded SGC Authentic.
