Graded 70 EX+ 5.5 by SGC. This ornately elegant piece is a part of a very scarce, 12-card set of N344 "Athletes" issued by Thos. H. Hall from 1880-92. Similar in style and format to the N342 "Actors, Actresses, Athletes & Presidential Candidates" Series, the sepia cards of N344 feature portraits of two different types of athletes from the 19th century - Pedestrians (or walkers) and Oarsmen - and are rarely encountered in meaningful quantities or a quality state of preservation. Excellent-plus condition.
1880-1892 N344 Thomas H. Hall "Between The Acts & Bravo - Athletes" Hazael, Glossy Finish - SGC 70 EX+ 5.5
