Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. 1887 N173 Old Judge cabinet card featuring Dick Johnston (#248-4 pose) of the Boston Beaneaters posed in front of a simple studio backdrop. This is a very attractive example with slightly light photo contrast. The blank reverse is entirely clean, a departure from most nineteenth-century cards, which so often display writing, album residue, or paper loss. This is a solid Vg-Ex sample from one of the most revered and substantial of all nineteenth-century baseball-card issues. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
