1888 N172 Old Judge Buck Ewing/Mascot

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,643.75

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Extremely striking high-grade 1888 N172 Old Judge card featuring one of the most unusual and memorable images to ever appear on a baseball card: New York Hall of Famer Buck Ewing and team mascot, Willie Breslin (Ewing & Mascot, N.Y.'s pose). In addition to being a very desirable Hall of Famer, the pose of this card makes it one of the most interesting images to appear in the Old Judge set. The youngster is dressed in a miniature New York Giants uniform, true to form in every detail to those worn by the players. This example is all the more noteworthy in that the photo quality of the card, as can easily be observed, is particularly outstanding and is simply far superior to that which is normally seen for this pose. The card has a flawless surface, and light, even wear to the corners. No creases. Bright, crisp, and clean, front and back. This is an outstanding example of one of the most unusual and memorable of all nineteenth-century cards, and featuring one of the most prominent Hall of Famers of the era. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,643.75
