Graded FR 1.5 by PSA. 1888 N172 Old Judge card featuring New York Hall of Famer Buck Ewing (#149-6) in a walking pose. This pose is considered by advanced N172 collectors as one of the rarer poses of Ewing featured in the N172 set. Ewing is one of the most prominent of all nineteenth-century Hall of Famers. The offered example is particularly bright and crisp, with excellent contrast, even stronger than it appears at a glance as Ewing's light uniform naturally does not contrast strongly against the light background. Even wear at the corners, including a small area of chipping in the lower left, which contributes to the modest assigned grade. The blank reverse shows moderate soiling. A very presentable N172 example featuring Buck Ewing, one of the most prominent Hall of Famers of the era. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
