1887 Allen & Ginter N28 and N29 Reprints Complete Set 8 - NM/MT
The original N28 & N29 Allen & Ginter set featured 100 popular athletes from the turn of the century. The cards featured color illustrations of baseball players, rowers, boxers, and wrestles. When the Card Collector’s Company reprinted the N28 & N29 Allen & Ginter cards only the baseball player’s were featured, making the reprint set just 16 cards. The reprinted cards are also slightly larger, measuring 1 5/8” x 2 ¾”, than the original N28 & N29 Allen & Ginter cards.
Players featured in this set include Cap Anson, Charles Comiskey, and Buck Ewing.
Building a N28 & N29 Allen & Ginter set today would cost tens of thousands of dollars if you could ever even find the cards.
