Graded FAIR 1.5 by SGC. 1888 N173 Goodwin Old Judge cabinet card of Hall of Famer Charles Comiskey dating from his playing days as leader and player-manager of the legendary World Champion St. Louis Browns. This card features "Commy" with his hands outstretched, ready to catch a ball at first (pose #86-3). Modestly graded example of one of the rarest of all Comiskey cards. This is a very presentable example with outstanding photo contrast. The advertising and player identification within the photo is more elaborate and prominent than on most Old Judge cards. A small spot of paper loss on the front and moderate staining front and back accounts for the modestly assigned grade. This is a very presentable and extremely rare card of "The Old Roman," Hall of Famer Charles Comiskey, from the N173 Old Judge series, one of card collecting’s most substantial and desirable nineteenth-century cabinet-card issues. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
