Graded FAIR 1.5 by SGC (submitted by REA). 1888 N173 Old Judge cabinet card featuring Dell Darling (#117-4 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 mount has moderate edge and corner wear, including thumbtack marks on both sides. The blank reverse has paper loss in the center and moderate soiling. 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+.
