The N43 Allen & Ginter issue of 1888 is among the most beautiful of all 19th Century lithographic cards.  This example, depicting Hall of Fame catcher Buck Ewing is easily the most desirable card of the set, a colorful, oversized card from a set that featured baseball players, boxers and other athletes.  Graded GOOD+ 2.5 by SGC, the card exhibits general wear, and some moderate soiling on the front and back, staining and foxing for more prevalent on the reverse.
