Graded EX 5 by SGC. Very attractive mid-grade example of Mike Griffin (Brooklyn Grooms) from the condition-sensitive N300 Mayo's Cut Plug series. Griffin stole 94 bases in 1887 to set a Major League record, which stood for nearly 100 years until Vince Coleman stole 110 in 1985. This very clean example is well centered, with a striking portrait image, and even wear to the corners (a bit more on the lower right). The back displays a hint of very light edge wear along the bottom and right edges. This is a very attractive sample card from one of the nineteenth century's most classic sets. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
