Graded VG 40 by SGC. Solid mid-grade example of Brooklyn's pitcher Bob Caruthers from the colorful N162 Goodwin Champions set. Caruthers is one of eight baseball players from this very popular fifty-card set issued by Old Judge and Gypsy Queen Cigarettes. The set features champions and stars of the day from a wide variety of sports. This extremely attractive mid-grade example displays bright, flawless colors, four strong corners, and near-perfect centering. A couple tiny chips of paper loss on the front account for the assigned grade. N162 Goodwin Champions are considered by many to be the most beautiful of all 19th-century tobacco cards. This is a very striking sample card in an extremely desirable grade. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
