    1895 N300 Mayo Cut Plug SGC-Graded Near set (47/48). The 40-card N300 Mayo Cut Plug edition appeared directly in between the N172 Old Judge and E107 Briesch-Williams promotions at a time when there were few other tobacco insert card sets being produced. It is the premier baseball card promotion of the 1890's. The deep and saturated black borders, dual-tone and finely detailed portraits combine for a luxurious presentation which make them easy objects of affection from passionate 19th Century enthusiasts. Among the roster of forty subjects (plus eight team/career status variations) are some of the greatest talents of the era including "Cap" Anson, John Ward, Buck Ewing, John Clarkson and Ed Delahanty. Complete sets are very difficult to assemble and auction offerings of N300's in quantity are even more rare than the cards themselves.

    Each card has been graded by SGC. Includes: SGC EX-MT 6: 1 card, Hamilton; SGC EX 5: 2 cards, Pfeffer/2nd Base and Ward/2nd Base; SGC VG-EX+ 4.5: 1 card, Griffin; SGC VG-EX 4: 2 cards, Hallman and McCarthy SGC VG+ 3.5: 1 card, Corcoran; SGC VG 3: 5 cards, Daly, Ganzel, Glasscock/Pittsburg, Tucker and Robinson SGC Good+ 2.5: 3 cards, Ewing/Cincinnati, Latham and Nichols; SGC Good 2: 6 cards, Cross, Delehanty, Glasscock/Louisville, Lowe, Russie/Error and Stocksdale; SGC Fair 1.5: 9 cards, Anson, Ewing/Cleveland, Joyce, Kennedy, Kinslow/No Team, Lovett, Murphy, Ryan and Shindle; SGC Poor 1: 4 cards, Bannon, Foutz, Pfeffer/Retired and Ward/Retired; SGC Authentic: 13 cards, Abbey, Brouthers/Baltimore, Brouthers/Louisville, Cartwright, Clarkson, Dahlen, Duffy, Haddock/No Team, Haddock/Philadelphia, Long, Nash, Rusie/Correct and Smith. Missing only Kinslow/Pittsburgh.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
