Graded VG/EX 4 by SGC (submitted by REA). Newly discovered 1888 N173 Old Judge cabinet card featuring Jim Devlin (#125-3 pose) of the St. Louis Browns posed in front of a simple studio backdrop. 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. The image on this card is very bold, with strong contrast and tremendous detail. Very bright, crisp, and clean, both front and back. A light crease on the lower right of the mount accounts for assigned grade. This is a stunning high-grade sample from one of the most revered and substantial of all nineteenth-century baseball-card issues. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
