Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Incredibly scarce 1888 N173 Goodwin Old Judge cabinet portrait of Hall of Famer Harry Wright. The legendary manager and founder of the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings appears in the Old Judge set in his later years as the manager of the Philadelphia Nationals. This is a magnificent example of one of the rarest and most desirable of all Old Judge cabinet Hall of Famers. Even among small Old Judges, Harry Wright is among the rarest. This is an outstanding example of one of Harry Wright's few baseball cards, one of his most impressive, and one of the most elusive key rarities among all N173 Old Judge cabinet Hall of Famers. Bright and crisp, both front and back, with superb contrast and only light touches of wear at the corners. Downgraded due to a small bit of wear on the right edge and a few very faint stains on the blank reverse. This is the finest N173 Harry Wright cabinet we have ever offered! It would be a worthy addition to any world-class N173, Hall of Fame, or Harry Wright collection. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+.
