1887 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer Mike "King" Kelly (#254-7 pose), identified as "$10,000 Kelly." Kelly earned this nickname when he was sold from Chicago to Boston following the 1886 season for this then-unheard-of sum. The card displays superb photo quality, even wear at the corners, light creasing, and centering to the extreme right. The blank reverse is clean. Encapsulated “Authentic” by SGC (submitted by REA) due to a slight trim. This is a very presentable N172 Old Judge of the legendary Mike "King" Kelly, one of nineteenth-century baseball's greatest stars. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
