Graded EX/NM 6 by SGC (submitted by REA). Outstanding high-grade 1888 N172 Old Judge example of Ernest Burch (#51-3 pose) with the St. Louis Whites. 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. Bright and clean, with light corner wear and a crisp image. The blank reverse is clean. This is a very striking high-grade example from the most important of all nineteenth-century sets. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
