1887 KALAMAZOO BATS N690-1

Issued in 1887 by Chas. Gross & Co. of Philadelphia, the N690-1s are the largest of the Kalamazoo Bats issues. The cards come in two distinct types; Type 1s are most common and contain no advertisements. Type IIs contain an advertisement on the black mount of the card.
It is believed that these scarce cards were packaged inside cigar packs of Kalamazoo Bats. These packs are incredibly difficult to locate. Since 1995, I have only been able to document the existence of one such pack (pictured above).
Approximate value of an empty pack would be $1000.00+.
