    1889 N196 Kimball "Pretty Athletes" Complete Set (20) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! This is the #1 set on the SGC Set Registry with a GPA of 47.0. This series truly represents the era from which it came. The illustrations of Victorian-era voluptuous vixens are colorful, whimsical, saucy and yet refined and I should say very well done both in style and lithography. This is one of those sets that you acquire just to treat yourself. This edition is rarely offered as a complete set. Includes: Graded - SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 1 card, Fishing; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 5 cards, Bicycling , Boxing, Fencing, Tobogganing, Weight Pulling; SGC 60 EX 5: 2 cards, Shooting, Tight-Rope Walking; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 1 card, Diving; SGC 40 VG 3: 6 cards, Swinging Rings Exercise, Trapeze Exercise, Dumb Bell Exercise, Parallel Bar Exercise, Club Swinging, Swimming; SGC 30 Good 2: 2 cards, Sand Bag Exercise and Lawn Tennis Exercise; SGC 20 FR 1.5: 1 card, Skating; SGC 10 PR 1: 2 cards, Skipping Rope and Rowing.
