1887 N172 Old Judge Cigarettes John Ward SGC NM 84

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,300

Graded NM 84 by SGC. Extremely high-grade example of New York Giants Hall of Famer John Ward in a horizontal sliding pose (pose #478-8) from the 1887 Old Judge series. Like the portrait and double-player cards in the series, the horizontal cards in the Old Judge set are very distinctive and have always been an extremely popular subset in the N172 Old Judge series. A grade of Near Mint is extraordinary for an Old Judge! The offered example is crisp and clean, with strong photo contrast, outstanding centering, and four square corners. The blank reverse is clean, with only very light toning visible. One of the more unusual of the ten poses of Ward in the Old Judge set, the offered card would be an outstanding highlight addition to any advanced Hall of Fame or nineteenth-century card collection.  Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,300
