    1888 N162 Goodwin "Champions" Jack Dempsey SGC 84 NM 7 - Pop One, Second Highest! From a total population of almost 25 cards, this is the only card to grade NM 7 with only one other grading higher. The history of pugilism includes two different men with the name Jack Dempsey and here we feature the first reincarnation from the 19th century. This Dempsey was called "The Nonpareil" because his skill was without equal. This colorful and scarce entry from the 1888 Goodwin "Champions" issue is a phenomenal example with fantastic coloring and the whitest white frame-all from a 122-year old thin card. Boxing fans, do Not pass on this beauty! Throughout this auction you will find a selection of some of the finest N162 Goodwin Champions graded by SGC.
