1887 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer Mike "King" Kelly (#254-6 pose), identified as "$10,000 Kelly." Kelly earned this nickname when he was sold from Boston to Chicago following the 1887 season for this then-unheard-of sum. The card displays light photo contrast in some areas, even wear on the corners, and outstanding centering. The blank reverse is fairly clean. Encapsulated “Authentic” by SGC (submitted by REA) due to a slight trim. This is a very presentable N172 Old Judge of the legendary Mike "King" Kelly, one of nineteenth-century baseball's greatest stars. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
