Graded by PSA EX-MT 6. This is arguably the nicest N300 Mayo's Cut Plug example featuring Hall of Famer Ed Delahanty we have ever seen. It is stellar with very mild wear at the upper right corner, barely noticeable on a card which contains those unforgiving black borders. Known as the Black Beauties, the Mayo’s were inserted as premium in plug tobacco, and are usually replete with stains. However, this example does not have any of the pesky tobacco stains, which commonly downgrade the N300s.

Tremendous image of a dapper Delahanty, whose hitting and fielding prowess mesmerized all 19th century baseball fans, he was the first 'five tool' player in baseball history. Other than light chipping along the right edge, which appears factory fresh, the reverse is near perfect. This is a stellar example of possibly the most difficult 19th century Hall of Famer card to find in this superb condition, which would not look out of place in a PSA NM 7 holder. This is the highest graded PSA example extant, with only FOUR cards within the entire N300 set (over 500 graded examples!) which have graded higher than this Delahanty.
