1888 N173 Goodwin Old Judge Cabinet Joseph Quinn

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $711

N173 Old Judge Cabinet card of Joseph Quinn of the Boston Beaneaters. This is a particularly rare Old Judge pose of Joseph Quinn (the first example we have ever seen) and one that is only known in the N173 cabinet series (unknown in the smaller N172 series). Old Judge cabinet cards have always been revered by collectors as among the most desirable of all pre-1900 issues. The offered card has the Old Judge Cigarette advertisement at the bottom neatly trimmed away. Light wear to the corners, and scattered marks on the reverse, including a small area of paper and album adhesive along the bottom border. A noteworthy pose rarity from the most classic of all nineteenth-century sets. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $711
