Outstanding collection of six cards from the legendary N172 Old Judge series featuring exclusively members of the Baltimore Orioles of the American Association. Each card is graded and encapsulated by SGC. These cards originate 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. All the cards within this lot were carefully removed from the scrapbook by a professional conservator using deionized water. They were submitted to SGC for grading with this information and SGC graded the cards as outlined in the composite below. SGC Grading Composite: #166-1 Foreman (VG/EX 4), 235-6 Hornung (VG 3), 262-5 Kilroy (GOOD 2), 375-4 Quinn (GOOD 2), 415-4 Shindle (VG/Ex 4) and 429-2 Sommers (FAIR 1.5). Image quality ranges on the six cards, but overall is medium to strong, far better than sometimes encountered on Old Judges. The blank backs do exhibit some light areas of scrapbook residue along with moderate toning. This is a very presentable collection of six cards worthy of any high-quality Baltimore Orioles or Old Judge collection. Total: 6 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
