    1888 N74 Duke "Fishers and Fish" Near Set (41/50). Offered for the first time anywhere, from the Sullivan collection. The N74 Duke's "Fishers and Fish" series from 1888 offers some of the more colorful and humorous designs of all 19th Century issues. A dual format set, half of the set features fish, the other half featuring the fishers, all well-dressed women with large heads showing off a fresh catch. What is universal is the cornucopia of hues and incredibly detailed artwork, some of the finest found on a tobacco card. This is a set rarely offered in quantity or complete. As with others lots from this collection, the visual presentation exceeds the technical grades. Eight cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 2 cards, Herring and Sculpin; SGC 60 EX 5: 1 card, Lake Trout; SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5: 1 card, Gurnard; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 2 cards, Black Bass and Gold Fish; SGC 45 VG+ 3.5: 1 card, Red Snapper; SGC 40 VG 3: 1 card, Blennies.
