1887 N172 Old Judge Tim Keefe

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $948

Graded EX 60 by SGC. 1887 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer Tim Keefe (#251-1 pose). This card was one of the highlights of a large totally untouched collection of N172 cards consigned to this auction, which was saved for decades by the family of the original owner. Very clean and attractive high-grade example with an 1887 copyright date. Keefe had 35 victories (against just 19 defeats) in 1887. His records in previous years were equally impressive: 42 in 1886, 37 in 1885, 37 in 1884, and 41 in 1883. This is a magnificent card in extremely high grade for any N172 Old Judge, and dating from the peak of Tim Keefe's legendary career. Superb photo quality, no creases, just very light, even corner wear and dust soiling to the reverse. Excellent condition. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
