Lot 328: 1888 Goodwin and Company Round Album with Original Mailing Envelope
Auction Date:11/30/2007 9:00 PM EST
First we have ever seen with the original mailing envelope from "Goodwin & Co. Old Judge Factory." The album itself has the original grommet and tassel. The front cover is complete but detached from the grommet and has a small piece of scotch tape on it. The front cover could be reattached and restored to its original condition. The back cover has one crease (by the grommet) and is attached. All pages are intact and NRMT but for creases by the grommet. 12 pages including the back cover with individual pages dedicated to Cap Anson, Mike Kelly, John Ward, and Chas Comiskey. A true work of art and this one is as nice as they get. Add the original mailer that comes with this and you have a prize like no other. Comes with a 1970 letter from an early collector who offers $6 to purchase this album from the owner. Very smart of him not to sell!
