Legendary April 2009
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Presented is a 48-card 1888 N25 Allen & Ginter "Wild Animals of the World" near set. In the 1880s, to experience the thrills and wonder of viewing exotic animals was much tougher than planning a trip to the local zoo. Certainly tobacco related collectibles such as these colorful and smartly illustrated series did much to fuel the imagination of animal lovers everywhere. Missing Jaguar and Wolf for completion. Presents mostly at the VG to EX level (with some lesser), but technically grade lower due to nearly half suffering from varying degrees of back damage or glue residue.
