    Description

    1887 N28 Allen & Ginter Cap Anson SGC 82 EX/NM+ 6.5. Cap Anson - baseball's first superstar. Not just a member of the 3,000 Hits Club, he was the founding member of the selective fraternity which set the standard for future excellence. His handlebar mustache and steely look of determination helps captivate the viewer as one gazes upon this quintessential Victorian era issue. It is no wonder the N28 edition is arguably the most popular of the 19th Century tobacco insert sets. A frosty white field overcomes the slight staining to surround Caps' boldly printed, waist-high portrait. Graded SGC 82 EX/MT+ 6.5. The lone card in 82 EX/NM+ with fourteen rated higher. A very pleasing example of the set's most desirable and valuable subject.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
