    Description

    1887 N28 Allen & Ginter King Kelly SGC 80 EX/NM 6. This is one of four examples at the EX/NM level with six grading higher. "King" Kelly was one of baseball's first true superstars. He is often credited with making the "hit and run," the hook slide and the catcher's practice of backing up first base common practice. Off the field, he was the subject of both song and cinema. The phrase "Slide Kelly, Slide" was the title for both a 19th century song and a 1927 movie. Offered is a very clean SGC 80 EX/NM 6 example of Hall of Famer "King" Kelly on a scarce N28 Allen & Ginter card. The offered card does show its age via some very, very light soiling and mild corner tip wear. It is completely free of major maladies such as creases, wrinkles, surface loss and pencil/pen markings. A pleasing example with a problem free portrait.
