Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. This is a very attractive 1889 N172 Old Judge rookie card of Hall of Famer Jake Beckley (pose #25-1). Bright and crisp, with light corner wear (surface chip on the upper left) and solid photo contrast. The blank reverse has several creases visible, which are responsible for the assigned grade. We have found Beckley to be a particularly difficult-to-find Hall of Famer in the Old Judge set. Beckley is baseball’s all-time leader in games played at first base. During his twenty Major League seasons, he batted .300 or better thirteen times, including six straight years, 1899-1904. This is a very clean, crisp, magnificent N172 example of Beckley, of all the greater significance as it dates from Beckley's rookie era. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
