Graded EX 60 by SGC. Extraordinary high-grade N172 Old Judge baseball card featuring legendary New York Giants manager James Mutrie in all his glory. Mutrie was always well known for his fine dress and immaculate grooming, both of which are clearly evident on his Old Judge baseball card. One of the leading figures in the game in the 1880s, Mutrie led the prominent New York club to three championships during that decade. Bright and crisp, with four square corners (surface chip on the tip of the upper left), outstanding photo quality, superb clarity, and excellent centering (slight diamond cut along the bottom). Clean reverse. A beautiful and very distinctive example from the most popular set of the era. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
