    1889 N223 Kinney John Sullivan SGC 10 PR 1. Graded 10 PR 1 by SGC, one of only five total copies graded to date. From an utterly obscure novelty series which invited consumers to hold the card up to the light to "reveal" hidden portions creating an alter image which ties into the copy on the front of the cards. This is the only known boxer within the 50 subjects/scenes in the series and certainly the most valuable. Sullivan is regarded as one of the greatest boxers of his time and an ideal celebrity choice for this type of production. A rare type card which presents nicer than the technical grade.
