Very pleasing Newsboy cabinet card, No. 202, of New York Giants catcher Parke Wilson. Newsboy cabinet cards were issued by the National Tobacco Works of New York City to promote their Newsboy Tobacco brand. Newsboys are extremely rare and one of the very few baseball-card sets issued during the 1890s. The offered cabinet features a beautiful portrait image with bold photo contrast. The mount has chipping along the top and bottom edges. The blank reverse is fairly clean with a spot of paper loss on the left edge. This is a rarely offered example from the desirable Newsboy cabinet-card series. Reserve $100. Estimate (open).
