Description

    1888 A36 (N162) Goodwin & Co. "Champions" Album - One of the Finest Examples Known! These spectacular premium albums are a testament to Victorian age lithography and are considered by most to be the most desirable. The rarely found "A36" album is one of the most aesthetically appealing artifacts in the card-collecting hobby. Surrounded by elaborate decorations are all 50 different subjects that make up the N162 Old Judge & Gypsy Queen series. Highlighted by the eight baseball players include Anson, Kelly, Keefe, Brouthers, Glasscock, Caruthers, Dunlap and Andrews are 42 more tennis players, boxers, oarsmen, billiard players, etc. plus Buffalo Bill Cody and Yale team captain Henry Beecher - honoree of the first card to feature a US football player. The front cover has light creases, both covers show light spotty surface wear. The stand-out features are the colors which are so vivid and still glossy! The interior pages are all incredible to see and there is no creasing. Page after page of richly colored, finely detailed illustrations is testimony to the lithographs craft but "art" is a more befitting term. Overall excellent-mint condition. This is certainly one of the finest examples to be made available at auction.
