Though this 1888 N403 Yum Yum Tobacco card of Brooklyn Grays outfielder Ed Greer has been skinned with the Yum Yum Tobacco ad trimmed off the card bottom beggars cannot be choosers when it comes to Yum Yums. This is an extraordinarily rare issue with just 106 graded examples known. The set which includes both illustrations and photographic portraits promotes Yum Yum brand smoking and chewing tobacco and features players from the eight National League teams plus the Brooklyn Grays of the American Association. The checklist for the unnumbered set currently includes 47 cards but may well include more. This card is one of just two graded examples known and presents extremely well given the aforementioned trim/skin. An outstanding and extraordinarily rare card.
