Kalamazoo Bats tobacco card of Philadelphia Athletics shortstop Arthur Irwin. This card features outstanding photo contrast. Graded POOR 1 by SGC due to a variety of condition flaws, including a horizontal crease across the center (reinforced by tape on the reverse) and scattered staining. The blank reverse displays evidence of album removal in addition to the aforementioned tape. An excellent opportunity to acquire a relatively affordable sample card from this extremely desirable and highly collectible nineteenth-century set. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
