Rare 1888 Presidential Base Ball Club card of Benjamin Harrison. Catalogued N154 and issued by Duke & Sons, the Presidential B.B. Club set is similar in dimensions (4.25 x 2.25 inches), design, and rarity to Kalamazoo Bats, but instead of ballplayers, they feature large ("Heads-Up" style) photographic portraits of the presidential and vice presidential candidates of 1888. Each portrait is comically superimposed on baseball-player bodies and posed in various baseball scenes with very elaborate studio stadium backdrops. On this card, Benjamin Harrison is preparing to field with his hands near the ground. Graded GOOD 30 by SGC, with a few moderate-to-heavy creases. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
