Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. 1887 N172 Old Judge example of Hall of Famer Sam Thompson (#456-3 pose) in front of an elaborate studio background. In 1887 Thompson led the National League with 545 at-bats, 203 hits, 23 triples, 166 RBI (the highest RBI total in the nineteenth century), a .372 batting average, and a .571 slugging percentage. The photo quality on the offered example is a little light, but the card presents well, with even wear at the corners. The blank reverse is lightly toned, with evidence of album removal present. This is a very presentable N172 Old Judge example of "Big Sam" Thompson, worthy of any vintage card, Hall of Fame, or Old Judge collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
