A Manly Mustache On An 1880s Ginter.

I love picking up cheap Allen & Ginters from the late 1880s. There's something so satisfying about knowing a card came from the nineteenth century and survived until now relatively unscathed.


My latest addition is John McKay, an oarsman from the N28 World's Champions set released in 1888. The card ran me 99 cents plus $1.50 to ship it my way.

I too love me Ginter (new and vintage). In fact, I just picked up four more 1889 Ginter Fish cards for the set I'm working on...expect a post on those on my blog this Saturday.

I know this card is much valuable than the amount you have paid. The happiness it can give you is much more valueable.
