1887 N173 Goodwin Old Judge Cabinet Collection (2)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,998

Two N173 Goodwin Old Judge cabinet cards. An attractive low-grade pair of these extremely substantial nineteenth-century rarities: 1) "Marty" Sullivan, Chicago (#444-5 pose). 1887 copyright. This card has scattered foxing and moisture stains, and has a couple red ink marks on the bottom. There is also soiling and some scrapbook paper in the lower left corner on the reverse. Fair condition. 2) Ned Williamson, Chicago (#502-2 pose). 1887 copyright. Similar foxing and moisture stains, and also with a few small red ink marks (primarily along left border). Heavy soiling on the reverse. Fair condition. Legendary Hall of Famer Cap Anson referred to Chicago infielder Ned Williamson as “the greatest all-around ballplayer the country ever saw.” Old Judge cabinet cards have always been revered by collectors as among the most desirable of all pre-1900 issues. This is a low-grade but still very attractive pair of these substantial cards from one of card collecting’s most important early issues. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,998
