The 1887 "Brown's Champions" set has always been among the most distinctive and popular of all N172 Old Judges. Each card from this highly sought-after Old Judge subset features portraits of players from this legendary championship team. Presented is a complete set of all thirteen scarce N172 "Brown's Champions" (also known as "Brownie Champs"), including Hall of Famer Commy Comiskey and St. Louis Browns owner Chris Von Der Ahe. Each card is graded and encapsulated by PSA (9) or SGC (4). Grading Composite: SGC VG/EX 4 (1 card): Yank Robinson. SGC VG 3 (1 card): Nat Hudson. PSA GOOD 2 (7 cards): Doc Bushong (SGC), Commy Comiskey (the key card in the set has light contrast, no creases, evenly rounded corners, and a clean reverse), Dave Foutz, Will Gleason (SGC), Rudy Kemler (MK), Tip O'Neil, and Chris Von Der Ahe. PSA PR 1 (4 cards): Bob Caruthers, Arlie Latham, Nick Nicholl, and Curt Welsh. This is an extremely appealing complete set of 1887 "Brown's Champions" cards. Almost every card in this complete set presents with outstanding photo contrast. The distinctive style of the set makes this series of great interest not just to N172 set collectors, but to collectors who are interested in having one of the most significant and earliest subsets issued by Old Judge, featuring one of the most celebrated teams of the nineteenth century. Total: 13 cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000++.
