Lot # 67 (of 1512)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1887 N172 Old Judge Buck Ewing

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,080

Graded FAIR 20 by SGC (submitted by REA). Superb N172 Old Judge card featuring New York Hall of Famer Buck Ewing (#149-6). Ewing is one of the most prominent of all nineteenth-century Hall of Famers. The offered example is particularly bright and crisp, with excellent contrast, even stronger than it appears at a glance as Ewing's light uniform naturally does not contrast strongly against the light background. Light wear at the corners, except for a small area of chipping in the lower right, which contributes to the modest assigned grade. The blank reverse shows light toning, perhaps from having been housed in an album at one point in time. An outstanding N172 example of Buck Ewing worthy of any N172, Hall of Fame, or nineteenth-century card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.

SOLD FOR $1,080
