Distributed in packages of Old Judge and Gypsy Queen Cigarettes, the 1888 Goodwin Champions N162 Harry Beecher card was the lone gridiron staple in the set of fifty athletes, as well as the first-ever football card printed! Graded VG-EX+ 4.5 by PSA, the offered Beecher example has survived the past century in impressive condition. This particular specimen is crease-free with a sturdy cardboard foundation featuring strong corners along with a slightly touched perimeter. The perfectly contrasted front is hallmarked by radiant gridiron illustrations. The clean reverse lists all of the set's principals and is entirely unmarked.
