1887 N28 World Champions Billiards Cards
I just came back from the post office after receiving a notice that I had a special delivery waiting for me at their lock-up. The postman came back from the rear of the building clutching a white box. Inside there was 8 cards from the Allen & Ginter tabacco card set produced in 1887 called N28 World Champions. There are 50 cards in the set with 8 of them being billiards players. Other sports include baseball, boxing, wrestlers, gun shooters and oarsmen. These 8 cards complete my non-baseball N28 set. Now its time to find a great deal on the ball players to complete the full set. Only 7 cards to go!
Check out my photo album to see my set. Only the billiards cards are up, but I will add to that list over the next several weeks.
