Graded GOOD+ 2.5 by SGC. Very presentable example of California Brown (pose #45-1) of the New York Giants from the legendary N172 Old Judge series. The image quality of the offered example is a little light, as is often the case with Old Judges, but the card displays well, with even wear at the corners and centering slightly to the right. There is light chipping on the left border and a few surface scratches, which accounts for the modest assigned grade. A very appealing example worthy of any N172 or nineteenth-century card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
