Modestly graded N172 Old Judge of Rudy Kemmler (pose #258-1) of the St. Louis Browns. The offered example pictures Kemmler on his "Brown's Champions" card, a highly sought-after Old Judge subset featuring portraits of players from this legendary championship team in their trademark pillbox hats with the "Brown's Champions 1886" notation underneath the image. Well centered, with even wear at the corners and strong photo contrast. Graded FAIR 20 by SGC due to a heavy crease extending down the center and evidence of album removal on the reverse. This is still a very presentable Brownie's Champ card that would be a welcome quality addition to any N172, nineteenth-century, or type-card collection. Reserve $100. Estimate (open).
