1887 N173 Old Judge Cabinet Ned Williamson - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,040

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC (submitted by REA). Highest-graded example! N173 Goodwin Old Judge cabinet example of nineteenth-century star Ned Williamson, Chicago shortstop (#502-5), posed in front of an elaborate studio backdrop. This is a magnificent N173 example with an EX-MT appearance (it has been downgraded due to a small crease in the upper left corner). The image on this card is extremely bold, with extraordinary contrast and tremendous detail. Very bright, crisp, and clean, both front and back. An outstanding sample from one of the most revered and substantial of all nineteenth-century baseball-card issues. This extremely striking N173 example is one of a small but exciting recent find of three N173s featuring Chicago players (including a rare brown mount) consigned to this auction, all new to the modern collecting world. SOLD FOR $2,040
