Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level by SGC with none higher! Magnificent high-grade example of Hall of Famer Buck Ewing (hands at neck pose) from the popular N284 Buchner Gold Coin series. The card displays light wear corners, brilliant colors, flawless registration, and centered to the right with a slight diamond cut along the top edge. The reverse is clean with the advertising centered high. Buchners are unusual in that they feature generic illustrations of the ballplayers rather than the actual likeness of the identified player. This is a stunning Hall of Famer example from the Buchner 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 $300. Estimate $500+.
