    Description

    1888 N321 S.F. Hess Donohue SGC 10 Poor 1. Very scarce issue derives from a forty-card set issued by S.F. Hess & Co. of Rochester, New York to promote "Creole Cigarettes" using players of the west coast California League. Though Donohue is unknown to all but the most serious of regional baseball historians, the colorful imagery of this nineteenth century edition are as professional as others of the era. Graded SGC 10 Poor 1, the card shows expected wear, including creases an writing on the reverse. To date, SGC has graded only three examples.

    More Information: From the Carolinas Collection. Starting with our last catalog auction, continuing in four different monthly on-line auctions and concluding in this auction we offer cards from the "Carolinas Collection." The hobbyist who put together this extensive type card assembly stopped collecting in the early 1990's and this collection has remained intact for the better part of the last three decades.
