Graded VG/EX+ 4.5 by SGC (submitted by REA). Outstanding high-grade example of Hardie Henderson (pose #222-1, Brooklyn) from the N172 Old Judge set posed in an outdoor setting. This card is part of an exciting, fresh-to-the-hobby collection consigned to this auction by the family of a Midwestern collector who built his impressive collection over a period of many decades, beginning as a young boy in the 1930s. Crisp and clean, both front and back, with strong centering, and light corner wear. A barely perceptible paper wrinkle on the photograph accounts for the assigned grade. This is an excellent representation from this classic nineteenth century set which would be an extremely significant addition to any high-grade N172 Old Judge collection. Reserve $200.
