1888 N173 Old Judge cabinet card featuring Thomas Burns (#59-2 pose) of the Chicago White Stockings posed in front of an elaborate studio backdrop. This card is part of an exciting, fresh-to-the-hobby find of ten N173s, including three Hall of Famers, discovered by a non-collector in the Midwest, all consigned to this auction. This is a very attractive example with outstanding photo clarity. The photograph displays scattered black marks in the background. The mount has moderate edge and corner wear, including a heavy crease in the lower left. The blank reverse has paper loss in the center and light soiling. Graded POOR 1 by SGC (submitted by REA). This is a very pleasing lower-grade sample from one of the most revered and substantial of all nineteenth-century baseball-card issues. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
