Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Exceptionally rare 1889 N173 Dogs Head cabinet card featuring Harry Stovey (#440-7 pose). All N173 Old Judges are rare, but examples with Dogs Head advertising are particularly rare, and extremely desirable among serious pre-1900 and sample-card collectors. The image on this card is very bold, with strong contrast. The front of the mount is clean, with light wear to the upper-left corner (more noticeable on the reverse) and a surface scratch on the lower right of the image. The blank reverse is entirely clean. An extremely rare and striking sample card from this legendary nineteenth-century cabinet-card series. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
