Allen & Ginter's 1888 World's Champions set remains popular with collectors 125 years after its original issue. Covering a wide range of sports and skills, the ten baseball players represented within are all expertly rendered.  This SGC 2.5 of Detroit's hard luck Charlie Bennett shows off the superb color and fine draughtmanship that is a hallmark of the set.  The front shows some signs of handling over the years and has sustained a triangular loss of paper in the bottom right quadrant. A couple of glue remnants remain on the reverse from being affixed to an old album but do not obscure the checklist back.
