Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. 1887 N172 Old Judge of New York Giants Hall of Famer Tim Keefe (pose #251-3). Keefe had 35 victories (against just 19 defeats) in 1887. His records in previous years were equally impressive: 42 in 1886, 37 in 1885, 37 in 1884, and 41 in 1883. Excellent photo quality, even corner wear, and evidence of album removal on the blank reverse, which contributes to the modest assigned grade. This is the type of card we marvel at as being one of vintage card-collecting's greatest values. Outstanding and classic N172 Old Judge tobacco card of Tim Keefe dating from the peak of his legendary career. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
