    Description

    1895 N300 Mayo's Cut Plug Cap Anson PSA EX 5. The 40-card Mayo Cut Plug edition appeared when there were few other tobacco insert card sets being produced and is the premier baseball card promotion of the mid-1890's. The deep and saturated black borders, dual-tone and finely detailed portraits combine for a luxurious presentation making N300s one of the most sought after cards of the 19th Century with a sports theme. Among the roster of subjects are some of the greatest talents of the era but certainly none are more sought after than Chicago 1st Baseman Adrian "Cap" Anson. Not just one of baseball's first superstars, Anson would become the founding member of the 3,000 Hits club, a selective fraternity which set the standard for future excellence. The offered example is bright and clean and presents magnificently. There are just minor condition issues including slight edge roughness, close to precise centering and some light corner wear. The lower left corner has a small surface chip which stands as the "worst" condition issue we can find. There is an impressive central portrait that is crisp and sharp. Graded PSA EX 5. This is one of only four cards at the EX level with a pair rated higher.
