Premium album issued by W. S. Kimball Company featuring images of all fifty cards from the 1888 N184 Kimball set, including all four baseball players as well as boxers and other stars of the sporting world. The beauty of these 1880s tobacco premium albums is that they feature the card images of the entire set - in this case N184 Kimball Champions. In many ways, having the album is very much like having the complete set of cards represented. The album still has its original string binding. The front and back covers are crisp and clean with just some minor corner wear. There is an erasure mark and a small surface scratch near the upper-right corner of the front cover (mentioned for accuracy). In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. The interior pages appear to have never seen the light of day. Reserve $500.
