1887-1889 N172 Old Judge SGC-Graded Collection (23)

Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $2,350.00

Collection of twenty-three N172 Old Judges; sixteen (of the 23 cards) have been graded and encapsulated by SGC: Two VG 40: McTamany (Bklyn) and Weber (1889 copyright, Sioux City). Nine FAIR 20: Boyle (Indianapolis), Foster – sliding pose (1888 copyright, NY), Gerhardt, Lynch, Farrar (Philadelphia), O’Brien (1889 copyright, Cleveland), Orr (Bklyn, 1888 copyright), Striker (1889 copyright, Cleveland), and Sutcliffe (1889 copyright, Cleveland). Five POOR 10: Brown (NY), George (NY), Hatfield (1888 copyright, NY), O’Brien (Bklyn), and Richardson (1888 copyright, NY). Seven ungraded cards (grades range from Pr to Gd-Vg): Gillespie (NY), Knouff (St. Louis), Maul (Pitt.), Morris (1888 copyright, Pitt.), Peeples (Bklyn), Roach (NY), and Traffley (1888 copyright, Des Moines). Many collectors assume that Old Judges are only possible to collect with a huge budget, but occasionally small groups of very respectable mid-grade examples are available. This is a very attractive small group of mid- to low-grade cards from the most important set of the nineteenth century, including a particularly strong 1888-dated example of Des Moines catcher Bill Traffley. Total 23 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000.
SOLD FOR $2,350.00
