1889 N173 Goodwin Old Judge Cabinet John Barnes

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $2,115

Graded FAIR 20 by SGC. Extremely striking and unusual 1889 N173 Old Judge cabinet card featuring manager John Barnes of the St. Paul Apostles (minor league) from the Western Association. Manager cards have always been one of the most interesting subsets of the Old Judge set, in part because of the fancy street clothes (as seen here) in which the subjects are usually pictured. Bright and crisp, with outstanding photo contrast, and superb clarity. The ink notation (Barnes Mgr St Paul) written on the mount below the photo, a few touches of ink on his jacket, and a small pencil mark ("A21") on the reverse keep this gem from a higher grade. A beautiful and very distinctive example from the most popular cabinet set of the era. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $2,115
