    NEWSBOY CABINET J.J. CORBETT. The decade following the great outpouring of cabinet premium cards witnessed the appearance of an expansive production identified as "Newsboy."  It was the 1890's, and the American Card Catalog grouped a multi-themed issue under the classification N566.  It was comprised mainly of actresses, but Newsboys included a few baseball players and, obviously, at least one pugilist.  This one, consistent with the issue's format, is numbered "72," J. J. Corbett.  It's in substandard condition due principally to a detached lower left corner, which has been re-affixed by tape.  Heavy creases appear at both right corners as well, rendering this one FR.  To its credit however, those several distractions don't violate the image of that very young champion.  And for the collector who may care to do so, this card could well be improved in apparent condition with professional restoration.
