1887 A16 Allen & Ginter World Champions Album features magnificent, vibrant color lithography. Front has a smartly decorated image of period sporting equipment with images of the John H. Ward and Jack Dempsey cards. Reverse has a flower bouquet with "A & G" at the center. Inside one finds eye popping exact size images of all 50 subjects found in the N28 World Champions card issue, grouped 4 or 5 to a page. 10 ball players are included - Hall of Famers Cap Anson, John Clarkson, Charles Comiskey, Tim Keefe, Mike Kelly, and John Ware as well as period stars Charles Bennett, Parisian Bob Caruthers, Captain John Glasscock, and Joseph Mulvey. Intricate, full color designs highlight each page to accent the images of the subjects portrayed. Pages are held together by maroon twine ties. The album was originally produced for collectors to glue their cards onto the decorated pages. Album itself is in very nice shape with some extremely tiny creasing around the holes with the string keeping it together. Corners have just the slightest wear with the back having a small ding at the lower left corner. Album measures 6" by 8" and was available by redeeming 50 coupons, found one per box of Allen & Ginter cigarettes. Included with the album is one of these original coupons plus a card of Caruthers that has been cut from a different one of these albums. One of the most beautiful 19th Century collectibles out there!
