Very pleasing example of Hall of Famer Charles Comiskey, the key card from the classic 1887 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 is a fresh-to-the-hobby example consigned to this auction by the family of the original owner. The card displays outstanding photo contrast, even wear on the corners, and a slight tilt to the image. Graded FR 1.5 by SGC (submitted by REA), due to the upper left corner missing paper and evidence of pencil marks on the blank reverse. Any Old Judge, even a common, with such tremendous photo quality is a prize, let alone a portrait of a Hall of Famer. The Brownie Champs 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 $200. Estimate (open).
