Graded EX 60 by SGC. Extremely attractive N284 Buchner Gold Coin of Hall of Famer John Ward (hands by knee, S. Stop pose). Clean and crisp on front with a flawless image, bright colors, excellent centering, and light wear on the corners. The reverse has a cluster of light tobacco stains. Buchners are unusual in that they feature generic illustrations of the ballplayers rather than the actual likeness of the identified player. This is an incredible example with outstanding visual appeal of this Hall of Famer from the Buchner 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+.
