Graded GOOD 2 by SGC (submitted by REA). Extremely desirable N173 Old Judge cabinet of Hall of Famer Hugh Duffy (pose #135-3) dating from his rookie season with Chicago. This lot originates from the extraordinary collection of a longtime Chicago Cubs executive, Eldred "Salty" Saltwell, which is consigned to this auction by his family. The collection, which includes a remarkable array of contracts, checks, and other related documents and mementos, will be presented over a series of auctions and will offer publicly for the first time many significant items spanning decades of Chicago baseball. This card presents extremely well, with a strong image displaying outstanding contrast. There is a crease visible on the lower left (mostly visible from the back) and scattered black markings in the background. The blank reverse has a stain on the lower left corner, as well as light soiling. This is a very presentable and relatively affordable example of this significant N173 Hall of Famer. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
