Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. Only one example graded higher! Crisp, clean, high-grade example of Hall of Famer Charles Comiskey, the key card from the classic 1887 Brown's Champions (also known as "Brownie Champs") set, which features portraits of the stars from this legendary championship team. Charles Comiskey is the only Hall of Famer in this highly sought-after Old Judge subset. This card is bright and clean, with tremendously strong contrast, near-perfect centering, and four strong, square corners. The blank reverse is almost entirely clean, with only a small age spot present. Any Old Judge, even a common, in such high grade is a prize, let alone a portrait of a Hall of Famer. The "Brown's Champions" set has always been among the most distinctive and popular of all Old Judges, and Comiskey is unquestionably the key card in the series. Reserve $1,500. Estimate (open).
