1887 N184 W.S. Kimball Champions Cards

1887 N184 W.S. Kimball Champions Cards
The 1887 N184 W. S. Kimball Champions Set contains 50 unnumbered cards measuring 1 1/2" x 2 3/4".  The N184 cards resemble the Allen & Ginter cards.  The Kimball Champions set features a portrait of the player on the top front of the card, with an action shot on the bottom half.

Card backs read: "Champions of Games and Sports Given With Each Box of W S Kimball & Co's Cigarettes".  True to other "Champions" sets of the 19th century, the issue is comprised of athletes from various sports.

Only 4 baseball cards were produced for this issue:  N184 Kimball Champions Tip O'Neill, Dell Darling, E.A. Burch and Hardie Henderson.  Also notable from this set is the Isaac Murphy, an African-American jockey that won three Kentucky Derbies!
