Graded NM 7 by PSA. This the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Magnificent high-grade example of Hall of Famer John Ward in a fielding pose from the popular N284 Buchner Gold Coin series. The card displays just the slightest hint of light wear on the square corners, brilliant colors, flawless registration, and centered to the right. The reverse is clean with bold text. Buchners are unusual in that they feature generic illustrations of the ballplayers rather than the actual likeness of the identified player. This is a stunning Hall of Famer example from the Buchner Gold Coin tobacco set, one of the few full-color baseball-card sets of the nineteenth century, and one of the most artistically interesting, distinctive, and classic baseball-card sets of the 1880s. Reserve $300. Estimate $500++.
