Graded FAIR 1.5 by SGC (submitted by REA). 1888 N173 Old Judge cabinet card featuring Silver Flint (#163-5 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 presentable example with slightly light photo contrast. The photograph has scattered markings in the background and the mount has purple marker on the lower right corner. The blank reverse has a heavy crease, a tape stain in the center, a few spots of purple marker, and light soiling. This is a very presentable lower-grade sample from one of the most revered and substantial of all nineteenth-century baseball-card issues. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
