1887 N172 Old Judge Tim Keefe

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $940

Graded FAIR 20 by SGC. 1887 N172 Old Judge card of Hall of Famer Tim Keefe of the New York Giants (#251-5 pitching, hand held out waist high). Very clean and attractive example with 1887 copyright date. Don't be fooled by the modest technical grade! The image on the card is bold with strong contrast. The card is centered slightly to the left, with no major creases (a small surface wrinkle on the back), very light corner wear, and a natural diamond cut. On the blank reverse is a pencil notation and a few tiny spots (top edge) of surface paper loss which, though incredibly minor, have a significant impact on the SGC-assigned grade. This is a very striking and attractive card, which, aside from the noted minor faults, is in Excellent condition, and has an appearance that clearly is far superior to its technically accurate SGC-assigned grade. This is a magnificent N172 Old Judge dating from the peak of Tim Keefe's legendary career. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $940
