    1888 N127 Duke "Sea Captains" Complete Set (25) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! This is the #1 set on the SGC Set Registry with a GPA of 60.7. Today, one would question why a promotion of Sea Captains would be a likely theme. In 1888, traveling the high seas stirred the imagination of many young lads and lassies yearning to travel and explore. This 25-card edition would have certainly enhanced those dreams and fantasies. Thanks to the lithographer, the superb quality of this set accounts for its preservation. The ink palette, the highly detailed illustrations and precision lithography have combined to produce one of the most amazing entries the hobby has to offer. If you have ever thought of venturing into the vast world of the "N" card we strongly suggest this be your first port-of-call. You won't be disappointed. Includes: Graded - SGC 84 NM 7: 1 card, J. Barre; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 5 cards, W. Willigerod, H. Condron, E.H. Freeth, A. D'Hauterive, E. Frangeul; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 4 cards, S. Santelli, R.D. Munro, C. Leist, B. Gleadell; SGC 60 EX 5: 7 cards, J.
