About this set: 

The 1894 Mayo Cut Plug - Football set was the first football card set ever manufactured. The set is comprised of Ivy League players from Harvard, Princeton and Yale. The black borders, black backs and sepia tone pictures make this an extremely difficult set to assemble. The rarity of these cards has limited the set's exposure and leaves this set extremely underrated and undervalued. The owner of this set sold it through a Mastro auction in April of 2008 for $96,000 (including buyer's premium).
