The beautifully designed 1889 Second Series Allen & Ginter World's Champions premium album features all fifty cards from the N29 Allen & Ginter set, including six baseball players (Ewing, Fogarty, Getzien, Miller, Morrill, Ryan), and eight boxers. The tobacco companies spared no expense in producing these gorgeous full color lithographic premium albums, which were available only by mail in exchange for coupons packed with tobacco products (in this case Allen & Ginter). The album displays some light corner and edge wear. The front cover has some minor creases, and surface wear on the upper left edge. The back cover has a few minor creases and 1/4 inch tear on the left edge. The interior pages are all bright and crisp. The string binding is complete, original and intact. A very attractive example of this classic, extremely popular, and colorful premium which presents the complete N29 set in album form and represents such an outstanding value among nineteenth-century tobacco issues. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
