Very presentable example of National League umpire Wallace Fessenden (pose #159-1) from the legendary N172 Old Judge series. 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 graded the card VG 3. The offered card displays an image that is a little light throughout, four strong corners, and outstanding centering. The blank reverse is clean with faint evidence of scrapbook removal. This is a presentable sample of a highly desirable umpire card that would be a worthy addition to any high-quality N172 Old Judge collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
