Scarce N175 "Small" Gypsy Queen of John Cahill of the Indianapolis Hoosiers. This card is the same size and general format as N172 Old Judge, but with a slightly different design, and advertising for Goodwin's Gypsy Queen brand of tobacco. There has always been some confusion as to the catalog number of the smaller Gypsy Queens (similar in size to N172s and not to be confused with the even rarer large N175 Gypsy Queens, of which nine different cards are known) because the catalog does not distinguish between the two sizes of cards represented by "N175." This card has an extremely strong image, light corner wear, and straw pencil marks on the borders. Graded Authentic by SGC, it appears to be slightly trimmed. The blank-backed reverse is clean. A sharp-looking sample from this rare and unusual Old Judge-related nineteenth-century issue. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
