    Description

    1888 N162 Goodwin "Champions" King Kelly SGC 60 EX. Graded 60 EX 5 by SGC. The N162 "Champions" series, produced by Goodwin & Co. in 1888 for the tobacco makers "Old Judge" and "Gypsy Queen" brands, offers 50 of the most beautiful sports related portraits ever produced and is widely considered to be the most attractive 19th Century baseball card release. Offered is a very clean example of Hall of Famer "King" Kelly, one of the more electrifying characters of the era. This highly prized collectible has moderate corner, is nicely centered with a predominately blemish free reverse plus no crease or wrinkles. Every cardboard gem should age this well after 120 years.
