Near-complete set of five different of the six baseball players from the 1889 N29 Allen & Ginter "World's Champions" second series set (missing only Ewing for completion), each graded and encapsulated by SGC. SGC Condition Report: Jas. H. Fogarty (EX 60), Chas. H. Getzin (VG/EX 50), Geo. F. Miller (EX+ 70), John Morrell (EX 60), and James Ryan (EX/NM 80). The N29 Allen & Ginter set has always been recognized as far rarer than the first series N28 Allen & Ginter Champions. This is a very attractive collection of five cards (representing five of the six baseball players) from this highly prized set, which has always been considered to be among the most beautiful of all the nineteenth-century tobacco issues. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades is $2,025. Total: 5 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
