Graded EX 5 by SGC. Exceptional high-grade 1887 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer Mike "King" Kelly (#254-5 pose), identified as "$10,000 Kelly" with "Boston" on his jersey. 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 even wear on the corners and the contrast is just a little light. The blank reverse has a few tiny spots of foxing but otherwise clean overall. This is a very attractive N172 Old Judge of the legendary Mike "King" Kelly, one of nineteenth-century baseball's greatest stars. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
