Detailed description on website.
Sound the clarion call for this collector’s grade 1889 A17 Allen & Ginter World's Champions Series 2 album. The heirloom features 50 nineteenth century athletes dispersed throughout the twelve themed inner pages. Included are relatively crease-free and colorful representations of baseball players (Ewing), cyclists, lawn tennis players, pugilists, runners, wrestlers and many others. The brunt of wear to the interior pages is relegated to the perimeters. Varying degrees of additional page soiling is evident throughout. Although the Victorian era front cover is 95% separated and the back cover is entirely separated due to a combination of acute wear, the colors remain bright and vibrant. The original twine is entirely intact.
