Near-complete set of seven baseball players from the 1888 N162 Goodwin Champions set, considered by many to be the single most beautiful of all the nineteenth-century tobacco issues. Each card is graded and encapsulated by PSA. A total of eight baseball players are included in the N162 set, and only Andrews is missing from this lot to complete the subset. The offered grouping of ballplayers includes four Hall of Famers (Anson, Brouthers, Keefe, and Kelly) and three other major prominent stars of the day (Caruthers, Dunlap, and Glasscock). PSA Grading Composite: GOOD 2 (1 card): Kelly (MK). FAIR 1.5 (1 card): Caruthers. Poor 1 (5 cards): Anson (MK), Brouthers (MK), Dunlap, Glasscock, and Keefe. All the fronts of the cards are bright, crisp, and clean, with brilliant colors and honest corner wear. The evidence of album removal on the reverses accounts for the assigned technical grades. This group offers a rare opportunity to acquire an extremely presentable yet still relatively affordable near-complete set of one of the most desirable of all nineteenth-century baseball cards. Total: 7 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
