Outstanding Upstate NY Estate Finds
Mark Lawson Antiques is proud to present an superb estate collection from Upstate New York, highlighted by a host of ultra-rare 1880s Lorillard Mechanics Delight tobacco boxing cards, along with a selection of 19th and 20th century fine art and objects. The Lorillard tobacco cards are a near-complete set from the boxer profile series, known as N269 in collectors circles, with many famous names including John L. Sullivan, Yankee Sullivan, Jack Dempsey and John Morrissey. This series is considered by many to be the acme of collectible boxing cards, with only a precious few available on the market at any time; we are offering 71 of these rarities.
