    1887 N77 Duke "Gymnastic Exercises" Blue Captions Complete Set (25) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! GPA: 45.4; Registry Rank: #1 on the SGC Set Registry. The 1880's version of a beauty pageant is found in this scarce 25-card series titled "Gymnastic Exercises." The imagery hardly reflects the athletic appeal the title suggests but we think smokers quickly overcame any disappointment. The tantalizing edition is available with captions printed in either blue or brown ink and this is a fully matching blue caption presentation. The illustrations are colorful and finely detailed. Includes: Graded - Includes: SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 2 cards, Forward Wheel Swing and Outside Hand Vault; SGC 60 EX 5: 6 cards, Backward Knee Swing, Fencing, Flying Rings/Swinging Exercise, Flying Trapeze/Leg Fly, Parallel Bar/Handspring, Parallel Bar/Walking; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 6 cards, Dumb Bells, Hanging By Toes, Roll Over, Rope Climbing, Rope Walking and The Foot Hang; SGC 40 VG 3: 4 cards, Double Arm Swing, Leg Swing, Parallel Bar/Vaulting and Slow Pull Up; SGC 30 GD 2: 4 cards, Indian Clubs, Saddle Vaulting, Swing and Snap Up and Trapeze/Flying Jump; SGC 20 FR 1.5: 1 card, Giant Swing; SGC 10 PR 1: 1 card, Back Wheel; SGC Authentic: 1 card, Slanting Ladder.
