    1888 N31 Allen & Ginter "World Dudes" Near Set (43/50) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! This set ranks in the #1 on the SGC Set Registry with a 71.3 GPA. What a fun set! And not an easy set to assemble in high grades. The satirical illustrations poke fun at the world of the international gentlemen and the activities that make them so. The work is second to none and the lithography is the top quality we all have come to expect from Victorian era tobacco insert cards. This presentation offers 43 of the 50 Allen & Ginter sponsored cards.
