1888 N173 Goodwin Dogs Head Cabinet Jimmy Cooney

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $2,400

Exceptionally rare 1888 N173 Dogs Head cabinet card featuring Jimmy Cooney of Omaha. All N173 Old Judges are rare, but examples with Dogs Head advertising are particularly rare, and extremely desirable among serious pre-1900 and sample-card collectors. In fact, this is only the third Dogs Head cabinet (of any player) we have offered during the past twenty years! This card features a striking photo of Cooney holding a bat in a posed studio setting. While the photo contrast is a little light, there is still great detail visible in the image, right down to the laces of Cooney's shoes. This is a very attractive card, with no creases, light touches of wear at the corners, and only small water stains visible along the edges on the blank reverse, which also has some light soiling. While it technically might grade slightly more modestly, this is a beautiful card with a strong Vg-Ex appearance. An extremely rare and striking sample card from this prestigious nineteenth-century cabinet-card series. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).

SOLD FOR $2,400
