    Description

    1895 N300 Mayo's Cut Plug Cap Anson SGC 80 EX/NM 6. 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 has weathered the last 120+ years magnificently. There are just minor condition issues with all four corners showing a defined 90-degree angle. The impressive central portrait is crisp and sharp with barely a blemish to speak of. Graded SGC 80 EX/NM 6. One of five cards graded 80 EX/NM 6 with just one rated higher.
