Graded EX 5 (MK) by PSA. 1887 N172 Old Judge card featuring New York Hall of Famer Buck Ewing (#149-6) in a walking pose. This pose is considered by advanced N172 collectors as one of the rarer poses of Ewing featured in the N172 set. Ewing is one of the most prominent of all nineteenth-century Hall of Famers. The offered example has light wear on the corners and, as is often the case with Old Judges, the picture is a little light. The blank reverse shows evidence of pencil erasure in the center, which is responsible for the MK qualifier. A solid N172 example of Buck Ewing worthy of any N172, Hall of Fame, or nineteenth-century card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
