The beautifully designed 1889 second-series Allen & Ginter "World's Champions" premium album features all fifty cards from the N29 Allen & Ginter set, including six baseball players (Ewing, Fogarty, Getzien, Miller, Morrill, Ryan), and eight boxers. The tobacco companies spared no expense in producing these gorgeous full-color lithographic premium albums, which were available only by mail in exchange for coupons packed with tobacco products (in this case Allen & Ginter). Technically in Fair condition due to heavy wear to the front and back covers, including creases, chips missing on the edges, rounded corners, and tears at the eyelets. The interior pages are all bright and crisp with very minor toning. The string binding is complete, original and intact. Accompanying the album is the original mailing envelope from Allen & Ginter in overall Good condition. A very presentable example of this classic, extremely popular, and colorful premium that presents the complete N29 set in album form and represents such an outstanding value among nineteenth-century tobacco issues. Total: 2 items (album and envelope). Reserve $300.
