Graded FAIR 1.5 by SGC (submitted by REA).Extremely desirable N173 Old Judge cabinet of Hall of Famer Hugh Duffy (pose #135-2) dating from his playing days as a shortstop with the Chicago White Stockings. 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 background and area identifying the player name and team is very light (as made), making the identifying white-letter text and copyright date difficult to read (due to the contrast of the white letters against the light background). There is a heavy crease visible on the lower left edge and tack markings on the right edge. The blank reverse has a tape stain and faint ink stamping, as well as light soiling. This is a very presentable and relatively affordable example of this significant N173 Hall of Famer. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
