Graded VG/EX 4 by SGC (submitted by REA). Newly discovered 1888 N173 Old Judge cabinet card featuring Tip O'Neill (#356-3 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. This is a very attractive example with outstanding photo clarity. The mount is clean with minor corner wear on the lower left. The blank reverse shows light toning. This is an outstanding sample from one of the most revered and substantial of all nineteenth-century baseball-card issues. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
