    Extremely Rare 1910 T219 Red Cross Boxing Collection (38). Only a handful of T219 Red Cross Boxing cards have ever been offered at public auction. In 2012 Heritage did present a near set, none others have come to light since and this lot is from the same source. These are the last of them! Be it a 19th century actress or a 20th century baseball player, boxer or flag, cards with the "Red Cross" brand are among the rarest in the hobby. This is an amazing chance to elevate your boxing collection to elite status, the duplicate subjects are prime trading material pugilist fans will fight over. The fronts may be recognizable but the true beauty and unquestionable significance of these 2 1/8" x 2-7/8" beacons shines with the simple flip of a card. Unfortunately PSA does not list the T219 set by brand in their pop report but the chances of any quantity being graded by them in the past is very, very slim. Includes: Graded - PSA VG-EX 4: 3 cards, Cross, O'Brien and Ketchell (MC); PSA VG+ 3.5: 1 card, J. Sullivan; PSA VG 3: 6 cards, McGovern, O'Brien, O'Keefe, O'Toole, Stewart and Welsh; PSA Good 2: 6 cards, Jeannette, Jeffries (2), Battling Nelson, Russell (2). Ungraded - Brannigan, Conley, Coulon, Cross, Driscoll, Goodman, Klaus, Kline (2), H. Lewis (3), Marto, McFarland, Neil, B. Nelson, D. Nelson, Nitchie, O'Brien, O'Toole, Stewart and West. Grades 24% VG to VG/EX, 31% GD to GD/VG, 45% PR to FR (couple miscut). A true "Louisiana Find!"
