Graded VG 40 by SGC (submitted by REA). Crisp, clean, and extremely attractive example of Hall of Famer Charles Comiskey, the key card from the classic 1886 Brownie Champs set, which features portraits of the stars from this legendary championship team. Charles Comiskey is the only Hall of Famer in this highly sought-after Old Judge subset. The offered example presents as Excellent or better, with a flawless image, tremendous contrast, perfect centering, and light touches of wear at the corners. Light creasing visible on the reverse and affecting only the back layer is responsible for the downgrade. Any Old Judge, even a common, with such tremendous photo quality is a prize, let alone a portrait of a Hall of Famer. The Brownie Champs set has always been among the most distinctive and popular of all Old Judges, and Comiskey is unquestionably the key card in the series. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
