C. 1890 "Young America" Set 1 - Printer's Proof Sheet (as N88 Duke "Terrors of America"). Fascinating and masterfully produced is this 10" x 7-15/16" printer's proof sheet depicted ten cards from the 1889 N88 "Terrors of America" series sponsored by Duke. This widely collected edition features children playing games and getting into assorted mischief - doing what kids do - along with the attitude one expects from unmanaged youngsters. What makes this so appealing is the differences one finds. Here, the intended cards are numbered unlike N88s; the title here is "Young America," was this just a working title? the original title? And the inclusion of "Set #1." Were these intended to be a separate series or were cards in the 1880's issued circulated in series just like the Goudey, Topps, Play Ball and Bowman sets of the 20th Century. What is the same is the incredible lithography. The proof sheet displays 12 colors with precision registration. The cards with a baseball theme are among the most desired examples, this sheet has three. Includes: #'d 1 The Umpire. Low Ball Jimmy, 2 The PITCHER. Just watch me twist it, 3 FOOT BALL. Oh my shin, 4 Der's a stunt for yer, 5 THE CATCHER. Sock 'em in, 6 SWIMMING. Cheese it, the cop, fellars, 7 KITE TIME. Great scott! But she's a pullin!!, 8 SNOW BALLING. Just look at that hat, 9 The Figure Eight and 10 Election Night. The paper has a couple short creases/wrinkles and the upper right clipped corner. This is one of two printer proof sheet in this auction.
