    1887 N35 Allen & Ginter "American Editors" Complete Set (50) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! This set ranks #1 on the SGC Set Registry with a 53.2 GPA. This series is very scarce and rarely made available at auction. The cards are as colorful, expertly illustrated and top of the lithographers craft as the other large-size Allen & Ginter promotions. What separates N35s from the rest are their limited availability that is probably explained by the fact that compared to the animals, presidents, actors and actresses, sports stars and cultural themes of the era, a set of 50 "stars" of the world of journalism seems like a hard sell. Includes: Graded - SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 1 card, Flickinger; SGC 84 NM 7: 2 cards, w/Clapp and Lamar; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 3 cards, w/Childs, Medill and Taylor; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 2 cards, w/Abel and DeYoung; SGC 60 EX 5: 13 cards, w/Arkins, Belo, Bleistein, Bickham, Colyar, Hawley, C.

Jones, McCullagh, Ottendorfer, Quindy, Reid, Rothaker, Silvester and Watterson; SGC 40 VG 3: 10 cards, w/Agnus, Dana, Grady, Goodwin, Mclean, Nicholson, O'Neil, Pulitzer, Sleicher and Smith; SGC 30 GD 2: 3 cards, w/Bundy, Cowles and Nixon; SGC 10 PR 1: 1 card, Noyes.
