Lot # 48 (of 1137)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1888 N172 Old Judge Charles Bastian SGC NM 84 - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $711

Graded NM 84 by SGC. Highest-graded example! Extraordinary N172 Old Judge of Chicago White Stockings infielder Charles Bastian (pose #23-3). Near Mint is an amazing grade for any Old Judge, and the offered example is especially well deserving of that designation. (In fact, to our eye Near Mint looks conservative for this gem!) Crisp image with stunning contrast. Near-perfect centering, four square corners, and a flawless surface. Bright and clean reverse with only a few scattered age spots, which are not at all distracting. This is a very striking ultra high-grade example from the most important of all nineteenth-century sets. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $711
