    1895 N310 Mayo Cut Plug Boxers Complete Set (35) - #1 on the SGC Registry With the Finest John L. Sullivan on Any Census! Mayo Cut Plug was the star brand for sports inserts cards in the mid-1890's.

Offered is a special 35-card complete set of the N310 "Boxers" as each card is among the finest examples graded by SGC or PSA for that matter.
