Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Very attractive high-grade Kalamazoo Bats tobacco card of Philadelphia Quakers pitcher Dan Casey. Extremely clean card with strong photo contrast and tremendous detail, showcasing the Philadelphia ballpark's grandstands in the background, which is one of the trademark characteristics of Kalamazoo Bats. Flawless surface free of any creases or wrinkles, with four strong corners. The reverse features a boldly printed advertising back (which is of special note as most Kalamazoo Bats cards have blank backs). Kalamazoo Bats are noted for both their great rarity and unique design. This is an extremely attractive example in remarkably high-grade from this important nineteenth-century tobacco issue. Reserve $1,000.
