Graded EX 60 by SGC. Very striking 1887 N172 Old Judge example of Hall of Famer Ned Hanlon (pose #212-1) with an elaborate studio background. Hanlon was a Major League ballplayer with six different teams from 1880 to 1892. He was a consistent player, accumulating over 1,300 hits during his career, but he is best known for his success as manager. Hanlon was the manager of the Baltimore Orioles from 1892 to 1898, a span during which the club won three pennants and two World Championships. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1996. This example has light wear on the corners and, as is often the case with Old Judges, the picture is a little light. The blank reverse has a few light stains. An exceptional high-grade example of a particularly difficult-to-find Old Judge Hall of Famer. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
