Graded EX-MT 6 (MK) by PSA. This is a very attractive 1888 N172 Old Judge rookie card of Hall of Famer Hugh Duffy (pose #135-5). Bright and crisp, with outstanding centering and solid photo contrast. The blank reverse has a small price written in pencil in the upper left corner (responsible for the qualifier). Hugh Duffy is credited with one of the greatest single seasons in the history of baseball. Not only did he bat a record .440 in 1894 but he also captured the triple crown by hitting 18 home runs and knocking in 145 RBIs, both incredible numbers at the time. This is a very impressive, crisp, clean, high-grade N172 example of Hugh Duffy dating from his rookie season. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
