    1889 N87 Duke "Shadows" Partial Set (25/50). "Shadows" is a series of clever artwork of humans throwing shadows that appear to be animals, and a few reversing that theme. Several cards in the set are far from politically correct, and express the far less enlightened racial mores of the Victorian age. Overall, the cards present much nicer than the technical grades suggests. Includes: SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 1 card, A Young Calf; SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5: 2 cards, Pat, The Bull; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 2 cards, A Striking Goat, The Kid; SGC 45 VG+ 3.5: 1 card, A Black Sheep; SGC 40 VG 3: 1 card, Guardian Of The Peace. Grades 48% VG to VG/EX+ (one nicer), 52% lesser (mainly due to glue residue on the reverse).
