World Class N28 Allen & Ginter
Charles Comiskey

Fall 2011 Auction
Lot Number: 4
1887 N28 Allen & Ginter
Charles Comiskey
Graded by PSA as NM-MT 8

Realized Price: $22,320

Charles Comiskey was a major league baseball player, manager, and team owner. His playing and managing career lasted from 1882 to 1894. Comiskey was a driving force behind formation of the American League. As owner of the Chicago White Sox from 1901-1931, he won two World Series championships (1906 and 1917). Despite the damage to his reputation as a result of the 1919 Black Sox scandal, he was inducted into the Hall-of-Fame in 1939.

Of all the N28 baseball players, this is the second rarest issue in NM-MT 8. To date, PSA has certified a mere three copies in this top notch grade. This world-class example has a remarkably clean surface, a finely detailed image of Comiskey, and a soft satiny finish. The artwork is bold and colorful, and the corners exhibit just a hint of wear. This is a great opportunity to acquire the key card in one of the most beautiful sets ever produced.
