Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level by SGC with none higher! Exceptionally attractive high-grade example of James "Tip" O'Neil 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 four strong corners, flawless registration, and outstanding centering. Boldly printed checklist back. While there are no Hall of Famers among the four baseball players in the N184 Kimball Champions set, James "Tip" O'Neil is the most prominent star among the four. An outstanding high-grade example of the key card from one of tobacco-card collecting's most classic issues. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
