    Description

    ALLEN & GINTER ALBUM PAGE. As was fashionable in many 19th Century non-sport card issues (tobacco), corresponding albums were published which replicated those cards.  One such album was devised for Allen & Ginter's renowned N28 card production.  The issue featured ten baseball players, and the album that followed presented the card images on two of its pages (four per page, and two others on the album cover).  By a full quantum, the most coveted of those pages is this offered one featuring Hall of Famers "King" Kelly, Tim Keefe and Cap Anson.  This page is from the album, A16 (as referenced the American Card Catalog), and probably appeared shortly after the 1887 card issue.  It measures 8" x 6" and this one has fared the ages very well.  There's no damage at the mounting holes (album was bound by a ribbon), and only forgivable corner anomalies qualify this piece to EX+.
