Graded EX/NM+ 6.5 by SGC (submitted by REA). Outstanding high-grade example of Kid Madden (pose #288-5) of Boston from the legendary N172 Old Judge series. 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 offered card features a crisp image with outstanding photo contrast and four strong corners. The blank reverse is perfectly clean (a tiny black mark is visible and mentioned for accuracy). A very attractive high-grade example worthy of any N172 or nineteenth-century card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
