    1894 N142 Duke "Honest" Cabinet George Davis SGC 40 VG 3 - None Higher. The N142 series are referred to as cabinet cards but are really so much more. For one, their generous 6" x 9-1/2" size dwarfs your traditional cabinet and in place of a possibly faded photo there is a beautifully lithographed illustration. Certainly a premium obtained in exchange for what was probably a king's ransom in coupons. They are among the most breathtaking tobacco promotions of the 1890's with examples only rarely offered. Presented is one of the best infielders of his era - Hall of Fame shortstop George S. Davis of the New York Giants. The mount shows no creasing and only modest edge wear. Surface toning and staining explain the SGC assessment. The central portrait is amazing with sharp detail and not a blemish to affect enjoyment with an overall visual presentation at the "excellent-mint" level. Graded SGC 40 VG 3. One of just ten total examples noted on the SGC census. Pop three in VG with none higher.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $8,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
