    Description

    1888 N78 Duke "History Of Generals" Complete Set (50). This hotly pursued edition is not your traditional insert card but educational and insightful multi-page booklets which offered a biography, some are actual first-hand accounts, of these most highly ranking soldiers. With the civil war not even 25 years past these men served as the "rock stars" of their era. Needless to say fragile paper, thin card stock front and back covers plus the stapled spine earns this beautifully series one of the most condition sensitive productions of the time. This is a set no serious 19th Century card enthusiast should be without. Examples higher than VG are very hard to find. A total of 16 cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: Graded - SGC 60 EX 5: 1 card, Gen. J.A. Early; SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5: 1 card, J.B. Magruder; SGC 45 VG+ 3.5: 1 card, General John Morgan; SGC 40 VG 3: 11 cards, Admiral Porter, Admiral Semmes, General Forrest, General Logan, General Pemberton, General Pickett, General Sheridan, General Sherman, General Stuart, T.J. Jackson, W.S. Rosecrans; SGC 30 GD 2: 1 card, General Lyon; SGC 20 FR 1.5: 1 card, General Lee. Grades VG to VG/EX (some better, some lesser).
