Graded VG 3 by SGC. Very pleasing Newsboy cabinet card, No. 181, of Brooklyn Grooms outfielder Dave Foutz. Newsboy cabinet cards were issued by the National Tobacco Works of New York City to promote their Newsboy Tobacco brand. Newsboys are extremely rare and one of the very few baseball-card sets issued during the 1890s. The offered cabinet features a portrait image with slightly light photo contrast. The mount is lightly soiled and the upper left corner is a bit worn. The blank reverse is fairly clean with just a few insignificant surface marks (mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy). This is a rarely offered example from the desirable Newsboy cabinet-card series. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
