Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC (submitted by REA). Stunning high-grade example of Frank Hafner (pose 207-5, Kansas City Cowboys) from the N172 Old Judge set. Hafner is listed among the scarce cards in the N172 series according to the "Old Judge Bible," The Photographic Baseball Cards of Goodwin & Company 1886-1890 by Jay Miller Joe Gonsowski and Richard Masson, published in 2008. This card, along with several other Old Judge lots within this auction, is new to the modern hobby, having been in the possession of a casual collector since the 1980s who decided that now is the right time to part with them. Crisp and clean, both front and back, with centering slightly to the right and strong corners with a bit of wear to the upper right. This is an ideal representation from this classic nineteenth-century set which would be an extremely significant addition to any world-class N172 Old Judge collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
