Graded EX 5 by PSA. Very attractive high-grade example of Brooklyn 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 attractive high-grade example displays bright, flawless colors, light corner wear, and excellent centering. There is a very tiny chip of paper loss on his left cheek (mentioned for accuracy). 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 a very high grade. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
