    1889 N43 Allen & Ginter "The Worlds Champions-Second Series" Complete Set (50) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! This is the #1 set on the SGC Set Registry with a GPA of 58.0. Allen & Ginter took the standard size tobacco insert cards to a whole new and elaborately illustrated level with these larger-sized cards that came inside boxes of processed smoking products. A century later, they are among the more hotly pursued editions from this era. Few sets are more prized than the N43 World's Champions-Second Series which gets its line up from the N29 series. Offered are all fifty subjects including the coveted half-dozen Baseball subjects topped by HoFer Buck Ewing. As one can imagine the completion of this set is by no means an easy task. Upon completion, the ability to profess a grade average just under the "Excellent" level is nothing short of impressive. Includes: Graded - SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 13 cards, Albert, Capt. Boyton, Carter, Crist, Capt. Daly, Duffy, Fitzgerald, Hill, Lange, O'Connor, Page, Queckberner, Sears; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 5 cards, East, Edwards, Geo.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
