Nestled in an advanced collection for decades, the offered 1888 A16 Allen & Ginter World Champions album is perhaps the finest example extant. It is difficult to conceive how this 124 year-old heirloom has endured the centuries in such remarkable condition! There is nary a crease or soft corner found on the twelve themed inner pages depicting 48 greats including cultural icons such as Anson, Clarkson, Cody, Comiskey, Keefe, Kelly, Oakley and Sullivan. The maroon twine binding tightly fastens the covers (with Dempsey and Ward on front) and the inner pages. Fresh and vibrant with lush hues throughout, this museum quality piece is an essential acquisition for the nineteenth century enthusiast.
