Newly discovered 1889 N172 Old Judge example of Hall of Famer Old Hoss Radbourn (pose #377-3). This card originates from a new-to-the-hobby collection of nineteenth-century cards that had been carefully saved in the pages of a scrapbook for over a century. This card was carefully removed from the scrapbook by a professional conservator using deionized water. It was submitted to SGC for grading with this information and SGC encapsulated the card as "Authentic." The photograph on the offered card is a little light, a characteristic that is common to many N172 cards. The team name has been scratched off and the blank reverse has faint evidence of scrapbook removal. A relatively affordable example of one of the most highly prized Hall of Famers in the N172 Old Judge set. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
