1887 N172 Old Judge Black Jack Burdock Portrait

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,560

Graded FAIR 20 by SGC (submitted by REA). Extremely attractive N172 Old Judge of Black Jack Burdock (pose #53-1) of the Boston Beaneaters. Do not be fooled by this card's modest assigned grade! This card is a blazer! As can be easily seen, this N172 Old Judge portrait example has one of the strongest images that we have ever seen on an Old Judge card! The image of Burdock is crisp and clean, with flawless clarity. The image is well centered, with even wear at the four corners. A small surface scratch is present along the top border; and the blank reverse shows moderate toning and a small area of pencil writing; these minor flaws are responsible for the harsh SGC grading. This card would be an outstanding addition to even the most advanced high-quality N172, nineteenth-century, or type-card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,560
