1888 N172 Old Judge James Mutrie

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $533

Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. Extraordinary high-grade N172 Old Judge baseball card featuring legendary New York Giants manager James Mutrie in all his glory. Mutrie was always well known for his fine dress and immaculate grooming, both of which are clearly evident on his Old Judge baseball card. One of the leading figures in the game in the 1880s, Mutrie led the prominent New York club to three championships during that decade. Bright and crisp, with four square corners, outstanding photo quality, superb clarity, and a flawless surface. Centered very slightly to the right (70/30 L/R). Only a couple small and very light spots on the reverse keep this gem from a higher grade. A beautiful and very distinctive example from the most popular set of the era. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $533
