1887 N172 Old Judge Charlie Comiskey

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,175

Graded VG 40 by SGC. 1887 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer "Chas. Comiskey, 1st B., Capt, St. Louis Browns" dating from his playing days as leader and player-manager of the legendary World Champion St. Louis Browns. This is an exceptionally attractive card, with strong photo contrast and detail, a light vertical background surface scratch (of modest consequence, and responsible for the card not receiving a much higher grade), and very light, even corner wear. The blank reverse is perfectly clean (interesting to note that close examination of the reverse reveals a slightly whiter area in the upper left in the shape of an old-fashioned paper stamp hinge, obviously the result of very careful storage long ago by a dedicated old-time collector). This is a magnificent, very high quality Hall of Famer Old Judge example of "The Old Roman," Charles Comiskey, with strong visual appeal. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,175
