#8003 - 1888 G&B Chewing Gum Jimmy Ryan - SGC FAIR 1.5 Estimate: $1,500+

Graded by SGC FAIR 1.5. One of the earliest baseball cards was also the first known gum card set, and the 1888 G&B Chewing Gum cards are categorized as E223, and are one of the most important 19th century issues. This example is of Chicago White Stockings outfielder Jimmy Ryan. Well centered with a bright image, the card exhibits four strong corners, but suffers a light amount of paper loss on the reverse, common for these 19th Century issues. Despite the character issue, the card presents well with a solid image, the key condition factor for this issue. Excellent overall appearance.
