Get a good jump on Allen & Ginter's famous 1887 N28 The World's Champions series with this group of (16) boxing and wrestling cards. While the baseball subset from this issue gets most of the glory, the Pugilists subset is well worthy of attention, with the great John L. Sullivan leading the pack. The last bare-knuckle champion plays ring leader in this offering, which boasts a complete (10)-card Pugilists subset, along with a pair of PSA graded cards.

Sullivan (VG, stained on the reverse side only), Jake Kilrain (VG+), Jem Smith (GD), Charlie Mitchell (FR-GD), Jimmy Carney (GD+), Jack Dempsey (VG-EX), Ike Weir (GD, minor reverse side writing), Jack McAuliffe (GD+), Joe Lannon presents VG details with deference to minor surface paper loss on the reverse, Jimmy Carroll (VG);
(2) PSA graded cards: Pugilists Ike Weir (VG-EX 4), Wrestlers Joe Acton (GD 2);
(2) Extra John L. Sullivan cards, both present VG obverse details, however one has minor surface paper loss on the reverse, and the other has album paper/adhesive residue on the reverse;
