Graded VG-EX+ 4.5 (submitted by REA). Very attractive mid-grade N28 Allen & Ginter of legendary Hall of Famer John Clarkson. This card is part of an exciting, fresh-to-the-hobby collection consigned to this auction by the family of a Midwestern collector who built his impressive collection over a period of many decades, beginning as a young boy in the 1930s. Bright and crisp, with near-perfect registry, strong colors, light corner wear (more so on the upper right), and centering to the left. This card features Clarkson in a Boston uniform and was therefore issued after Clarkson finished the 1887 season with Chicago, and signed with Boston for the upcoming season. This is a stunning mid-grade card of one of baseball’s greatest pitching legends from one of the most popular of all nineteenth-century sets. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
