Graded VG/EX 4 by SGC. 1887 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer John Clarkson with the Chicago White Stockings in a hands outstretched pose (pose #78-6). Clarkson was one of the greatest pitchers of the nineteenth century. In 1887, the year this card was issued, he led the league with 38 wins. This is a very sharp-looking card, clean front and back, with even wear on the corners, strong photo contrast, and featuring Clarkson posed in front of an elaborate studio backdrop. Centered toward the right. A very attractive example of one of the premier Hall of Famers of the Old Judge set. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
