1887 N173 Goodwin Old Judge Cabinet Cap Anson

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,113

Graded FAIR 20 by SGC. Extremely attractive medium-grade example of Cap Anson from the N173 Old Judge cabinet series. The N173 Anson is one of the most impressive of all Cap Anson cards, and one of the great classics and most sought-after of all nineteenth-century cards. The actual mounted photograph is in Excellent condition with a corner crease in the upper left. The mount has surface chipping in three places (top and bottom right corners, and left edge), and a couple of areas of light water staining on the left and bottom borders (more pronounced in the lower left corner). Close inspection of the blank reverse reveals evidence of some extremely light stains, very likely the result of having been exposed to moisture. Despite faults, still a very attractive card. Technically grades Fair, but with a much stronger appearance. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $4,113
