    1896 H818 A. G. Spalding Stand-Ups "Football" SGC 84 NM 7 - The Finest SGC Example! Koerner & Hayes of Buffalo, New York produced these stunning stand-ups ads for Spalding & Bros. sporting equipment and bicycles in 1896. The set consists of five different full-figure depictions of a baseball, football, golf, tennis, and cyclist with a short history of the sport on the reverse. The thin card stock collectible are approx. 5x3" and rarely found as a complete set. Offered is an SGC 84 NM 7 example of the generic football player which is an early depiction for the sport (the first US football card appeared in 1887) and what an impressive example it is. Barely a hint of wear and bold colors almost strike one as odd considering it is 118-years old and the fact they were supposed to be used and discarded.
