Graded EX+ 70 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level by SGC with none higher! Exceptionally attractive high-grade example of E. A. Burch from the N184 W. S. Kimball Champions set. Kimballs are considered by many to be among the most beautiful of all of the nineteenth-century tobacco issues. The set features champions and stars of the day from a wide variety of sports, among them four baseball players. Crisp and clean with light, even wear to the four corners, flawless registration, and centered almost entirely to the bottom. Boldly printed checklist back with light toning affecting the left side of the reverse. An outstanding example of one of the key cards from one of tobacco-card collecting's most classic issues. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
