Graded VG 3 by SGC. Very attractive mid-grade example of Hall of Famer Tim Keefe (ball out of hand pose) from the popular N284 Buchner Gold Coin set. Buchners are unusual in that they feature generic illustrations of the ballplayers rather than the actual likeness of the identified player. The offered card displays a flawless, crisp image, with bold colors, four strong corners, a light crease on the upper right, and centering toward the bottom right. The reverse is clean with boldly printed black text. This is an extremely appealing Hall of Famer example from the Buchner Gold Coin tobacco set, one of the few full-color baseball-card sets of the nineteenth century, and one of the most artistically interesting, distinctive, and classic baseball-card sets of the 1880s. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
