    1888 N403 Yum Yum Jim O'Rourke (With Bat) SGC 70 EX+ 5.5 - One of Only Two Graded Examples! Extremely rare by any standard, our offered N403 Yum Yum features Hall of Famer Jim O'Rourke depicted "With Bat" in illustration style. Few 19th Century productions generate the level of head-turning excitement as do the cards produced by the August Beck Company of Chicago for the "Yum Yum Tobacco" brand. The format is a take on the far more common N172s of the same era and the date of this set coincides with the later years of his career which stared in 1872. N403 Yum Yum's truly rank among the rarest 19th Century releases. Acquiring a single example leaves even the most advanced collector eternally grateful for the privilege. This is an opportunity to own more than just a random subject from this monumentally elusive set but a top-tier 19th Century Hall of Famer. Graded SGC 70 EX+ 5.5. One of only two examples graded by SGC (PSA has yet to grade one). Pop one in EX+ with one higher. We highly recommend not waiting to for that card to come to market.
