Graded EX+ 70 by SGC (submitted by REA). This is the ONLY example graded at this level by SGC with just one higher. Extremely striking high-grade 1887 N173 Goodwin Old Judge cabinet card featuring one of the most unusual and memorable images to ever appear on a baseball card: New York Hall of Famer Buck Ewing and team mascot, Willie Breslin. In addition to being a very desirable Hall of Famer, the pose of this card makes it one of the most interesting images to appear in the Old Judge set. The youngster is dressed in a miniature New York Giants uniform, true to form in every detail to those worn by the players. This example has exceptional photo quality. Very bright, crisp, and clean, both front and back. This is an outstanding high-grade example of one of the most unusual and memorable of all nineteenth-century cards, featuring one of the most prominent Hall of Famers of the era. From the Dan Gantt Collection.
