N300 Mayo's Cut Plug of Hall of Famer Cap Anson. This is a particularly significant nineteenth-century card as Mayo is one of the very few sets featuring Cap Anson from his playing days. Though he was the premier player of his day, for some reason Anson is represented by only two poses in the N172 Old Judge series (and one of those, of course, is the incredibly rare "Anson in uniform" pose, of which there are only several known examples). Encapsulated as Authentic by SGC, the obvious condition flaws include excessive damage to the black borders and moderate creasing on the reverse. This is a relatively affordable low-grade example of one of Cap Anson's most desirable cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
