Graded VG 3 by PSA (submitted by REA). Outstanding example of Ernie Burch (pose #51-7, Brooklyn) from the N172 Old Judge set posed in an outdoor setting. 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. Like the portrait and double-player cards in the series, the horizontal cards in the Old Judge set are very distinctive and have always been an extremely popular subset in the N172 Old Judge series. The offered example is crisp and clean, with strong photo contrast, and light wear to the corners. The blank reverse is clean with light toning on the edges. This is an excellent representation from this classic nineteenth-century set that would be an extremely significant addition to any high-quality N172 Old Judge collection. Reserve $200.
