Pre-1900 Hall of Famer Card Collection: N172, N175, N300 (5)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $3,259

Collection of five Hall of Famers from three different classic nineteenth-century issues. As is often the case with pre-1900 cards, these five cards are in very modest grades, but are still great-looking cards from important sets. Featured are five of the nineteenth century's most legendary Hall of Famers. Of special note is the inclusion of a rare N175 Gypsy Queen tobacco card of Dan Brouthers. 1) 1887 N175 Gypsy Queen: Dan Brouthers (SGC POOR 10, looking-at-ball pose). 2) 1887 N172 Old Judge: #251-4 Tim Keefe (outstanding contrast, technically grades Pr due to back damage, slight miscut or possible trim along right border). 3) 1887 N172 Old Judge: 301-3 Tommy McCarthy (tagging player, Vg-Ex). 4) 1888 N172 Old Judge: 358-2 Jim O'Rourke (1888 copyright, Pr, two small tack holes). 5) 1895 N300 Mayo's Cut Plug: John Clarkson (Pr-Fr but still a nice-looking card). This is a very impressive small group of pre-1900 Hall of Famers, most with eye-appeal far superior to their technically accurate grades. Total: 5 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500++ . SOLD FOR $3,259
