Description



Graded 4 VG-EX by SGC. Breathtaking 1887 N690 Kalamazoo Bats Denny Lyons picturing the Cincinnati native in a grand ballpark setting. This 135-year-old tobacco card was published by Chas. Gross & Co. and is the first issue to take ballplayers out of the studio and onto the field. The right-handed outfielder is captured in timeless clarity with a crease-free sepia front, moderately touched corners, off-white edges and relatively clean surfaces with only limited front/back foxing. Of the 6 total judged by SGC, this relic survives as 1 of 2 at the grading level with none better!
