Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC (submitted by REA). This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Incredible 1889 N173 Goodwin Old Judge cabinet card featuring Ad Gumbert (pose #203-1) of the Chicago White Stockings. This card is part of an exciting, fresh-to-the-hobby find of fifteen N173s, including five Hall of Famers and two Dogs Head cards, discovered by a non-collector in Maine among the possessions of his grandfather, all consigned to this auction. The image on this card is extremely bold, with phenomenal contrast and tremendous detail. The extraordinary quality of the photograph allows for one to see the laces on his shirt and even the laces on his shoes. Perfectly clean on the front and back. This is an exceptionally high-grade example from one of the nineteenth century's most substantial and highly regarded sets. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++.
