    1888 N224 Kinney Tobacco Military Series Near Set (612/622) With Hussar Of France Plus Mini-Strip. It is sets like this that amaze people within the hobby and amaze people outside the hobby... but for different reasons. The 1888 N224 Kinney Military tobacco series by Kenny tobacco is a mammoth production of over 600 cards (622 to be exact) that feature finely detailed soldiers in full uniform from the United States and countries around the globe, both contemporary and throughout the past. In terms of availability, there are cards that are common and there are cards that come close to impossible to find. For the non-sports enthusiast, this is the equivalent of the T206 or N172 series. It should come as no surprise that according to our databases a complete set has never been made available at auction and it is possible one does not exist. The British museum has a set of 621 cards that is missing a noted rarity - "Hussar of France" - and we are happy to say that card is included here. Amassing 400, 500 then 600 cards is a monumental effort and comes at a pace many will give up on. We are very pleased to offer the largest accumulation that has ever been presented publicly. Offered is a 612-card accomplishment that is missing just ten cards. Also included is a rare 4-card uncut strip of Private 14th Reg N.Y.S.M. cards. Sixteen cards have been graded by PSA. Includes: Graded - PSA EX-MT 6: 7 cards; PSA EX+ 5.5: 1 card; PSA EX 5: 6 cards; PSA GD 2: 1 card; PSA Authentic (Altered): 1 card, Hussar Of France. Missing: Lt. Albany Burgess Corps NGSNY - Priv 7th Regt N65NY - Priv 22nd Regt N65NY - Priv 23rd Regt N65NY - Priv 47th Regt N65NY - Priv 69th Regt N65NY - Sgt 3rd Gatling Battery N65NY - 6th Bengal Cavalry, Ind. Cont., England - Capt, 11th Hussars, England - Capt, 13th Hussars, England for completion. Grades 5% EX to EX/MT, 55% VG to VG/EX, 40% PR to GD (with trimmed cards).
