    Description

    1888 N162 Goodwin "Champions" Henry Beecher (1st Football Card) PSA Authentic - Rare No Lithographer Credit Variant! Scarce and desirable describes this card with the distinction of being the very first tobacco insert card produced honoring a football player. The athlete receiving the honor is Yale's Henry Beecher. The card is missing portions of the top border and is an even more rare variant missing the traditional "Geo S. Harris & Sons, Lith. Phila" credit line. This is a prime opportunity to acquire the first card dedicate to US football and a rare variant. Encapsulated PSA Authentic.
