1888 A36 Goodwin Champions Album featuring images of all fifty cards from the spectacularly colorful N162 Old Judge & Gypsy Queen series. Baseball players include Anson, Kelly, Keefe, Brouthers, Glasscock, Caruthers, Dunlap, and Andrews. Also included are the additional forty-two stars of the sporting world. The N162 Old Judge & Gypsy Queen tobacco cards featured in this album are universally regarded as among the most beautiful and desirable of all pre-1900 tobacco issues. While the N162 cards were issued in packs with tobacco, the far rarer premium albums could be obtained only by mail in exchange for coupons packed with Old Judge & Gypsy Queen brand tobacco. The front cover of the album has a few very minor creases, light spots of toning, and surface flaking. The back cover of the album has a few minor creases, several areas of paper loss, and a couple small tears repaired with clear tape. The interior pages are extremely bright and fresh without any flaking, surface chipping, or other flaws that are so common with this premium album. An extremely attractive mid-grade example of this nineteenth-century classic. Reserve $1,000.
