1888 N172 Old Judge Tim Keefe

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,410

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Strong Near Mint appearance! 1888 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer Tim Keefe with the New York Giants in a batting pose. Absolutely stunning Old Judge of Tim Keefe with a perfect photo with flawless contrast. This card is a gem! It has been downgraded almost exclusively due to the tape stain across the top of the blank reverse that is of little or no consequence. This card would be a highlight example in any nineteenth-century, Old Judge, or Hall of Famer card collection! This is also an unusual pose in that Keefe, of course, was one of the greatest pitchers of the nineteenth century. In 1888, the year this card was issued, he led the league with 35 wins, 335 strikeouts, and a 1.74 ERA. A magnificent-looking card, clean front and back, with no creases, bright and clean, a few pinpoint surface flaws visible under magnification, with outstanding and essentially unimprovable picture clarity. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,410
