    Rare 1890's K74 Professions "The Pugilist" for McLaughlin's XXXX Coffee. Offered is a rare 1890's Trade Card promoting McLaughlin's XXXX Coffee from the "Professions" 10-card series titled "The Pugilist." The card is advertised as one of a series of ten but is unnumbered. This 5-3/8" x 6-7/8" example displays a wonderful illustration of a young boxer in training, gloves tied and ready to fight. Behind our young athlete is an array of equipment and a brutal depiction in the upper left corner of two bloody bare-knuckles fighting before a cheering crowd. The reverse has obvious paper adhered to most of the area, one spot of loss and an ink notation. The obverse presents at the Ex/MY level with bold colors and just one small chip in the delicate gold metallic ink in lower left. A terrific piece for display in any vintage

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
