1886 N172 Old Judge Joe Gerhardt - SGC NM 84

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,293

Graded NM 84 by SGC. Highest-graded example by SGC! Outstanding ultra high grade "script series" N172 Old Judge example of Joe Gerhardt of the New York Giants. This is a tremendous example of the unusual "script series," which are among the earliest of all Old Judges. We believe this series was issued in 1886 (although it is possible they date from early 1887). Bright, crisp, and clean, front and back, with square corners, flawless surface, and bold image, and centered very slightly to the left. The reverse is perfectly clean with only a tiny black spot near the center (mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy). This is a very striking high-grade example from one of the most important of all nineteenth-century sets. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,293
