    1887 N77 Duke "Gymnastic Exercises" Brown Captions Complete Set (25) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! Set GPA: 59.6; 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 over came any disappointment. The tantalizing edition is available with captions printed in either blue or brown ink and this is a fully matching brown caption presentation. The illustrations are colorful and finely detailed. If the alluring theme isn't enough, the fact that the set is 60% excellent or better should certainly act as necessary incentive. Includes: Graded - SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 5 cards, Giant Swing, Indian Clubs, Leg Swing, Saddle Vaulting, Swing And Snap Up; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 1 cards, Trapeze-Flying Jump; SGC 60 EX 5: 9 cards, Double Arm Swing, Fencing, Flying Rings-Swinging Exercise, Flying Trapeze Leg Fly, Parallel Bar-Vaulting, Parallel Bar-Walking, Rope Climbing, Slow Pull Up, The Foot Hang; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 8 cards, Back Wheel, Backward Knee Swing, Dumb Bells, Forward Wheel Swing, Hanging By Toes, Parallel Bar-Handspring, Rope Walking, Slanting Ladder; SGC 40 VG 3: 2 cards, Outside Hand Vault, Roll Over.
