1888 N43 Allen & Ginter Baseball Cards
First produced in 1888, Allen & Ginter's N28 set is one of the very first tobacco sets ever produced. The set of 50 cards includes 10 base ball players, 6 of whom were inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame. The other athletes portrayed in the N28 set are billiard players, wrestlers, rifle shooters, pugilists and oarsmen. The card's front features color artwork of the player with their full name at the bottom.
