Boxers, or Puglists as they were then called, include Jake Kilrain PSA 6, Mitchell PSA 7, Carney PSA 7, McAuliffe PSA 7, Carroll PSA 6, and Lannon PSA 6. Wrestlers include Muldoon PSA 7, Acton PSA 7, Young Bibby PSA 6, McLaughlin PSA 5, Bauer (EX), Acton (VG-EX, pencil on verso), and Sorakichi (Poor because of pencil and paper loss on verso). There are eight different Oarsmen with ten total and they average VG to VG-EX. There are two more PSA cards: W.M. Sexton PSA 5 and Patrick Fitzgerald PSA 5. The last two cards are W.F. Carver and George Slosson, both VG-EX. Great if you’re looking to begin a set. Tons of break-up value with a couple of baseball HOF’ers and five different PSA 7 NRMT examples of boxers and wrestlers.
