Graded by SGC 40 VG 3. Cap Anson was the greatest ballplayer of the 19th Century, the first to amass over 3,000 hits, and he is still the Chicago Cubs leader in batting average, runs, hits, doubles, and RBIs. This 1887 N28 Allen & Ginter card was issued at the height of Anson’s career, when he was the top run producer in the game. This example boasts a well-centered, fully focused image with bright color and four evenly touched corners. The reverse is well struck with one small print blemish.
