Graded EX 60 by SGC. Very high-grade example of 1887 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer Mike "King" Kelly (#254-8 pose), identified as "$10,000 Kelly." Kelly earned this nickname when he was sold from Boston to Chicago following the 1887 season for this then-unheard-of sum. The card is bright and clean, with superb photo quality, centered slightly to the right, and with a light insignificant stain on the upper right portion of the card. This is one of the most popular poses of Kelly in the Old Judge series. This is an outstanding, extremely high-grade Old Judge of the legendary Mike "King" Kelly, one of nineteenth-century baseball's greatest stars. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
