1887 N172 Old Judge Billy Hamilton

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $960

Extremely attractive N172 Old Judge card of Hall of Famer Billy Hamilton (pose #210-1). According to The Photographic Baseball Cards of Goodwin & Company (1886-1890), the definitive book on Old Judges by Jay Miller, Joe Gonsowski, and Richard Masson, Hamilton ranks as the eighth rarest Hall of Famer (out of twenty-eight) in the entire N172 set. Clean front, no creases, with superb clarity and photo contrast. Light wear at the corners, with a Vg appearance overall. Encapsulated as "Authentic" by SGC due to an irregular cut along the bottom edge. This card has a particularly strong image, which is a highly valued quality among serious Old Judge collectors, far more than the technical grade. An outstanding N172 example of Billy Hamilton worthy of any N172, Hall of Fame, or nineteenth-century card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
