1888 N172 Old Judge Gus Schmelz - Manager

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,320

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Superb example of Cincinnati manager Gus Schmelz (pose #403-2) from the legendary N172 Old Judge series. Managers tend to jump out as special and unusual in any collection of Old Judges, in part because of the fancy street clothes (as seen here) in which the subjects are usually pictured. They are naturally a very popular subset of Old Judge collecting. The offered card is outstanding in every way, with tremendous photo quality, outstanding clarity, and a virtually flawless surface. Very light wear is visible along the right edge and in the upper right corner. The blank reverse displays light vertical creasing, which does not affect the front and accounts for the assigned grade. This is a beautiful sample of a highly desirable manager card that would be a worthy addition to any high-quality N172 Old Judge collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,320
