1887 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer John Clarkson with the Chicago Nationals in a throwing pose (pose #78-2). Clarkson was one of the great pitchers of the nineteenth century. In 1887, the year this card was issued, he led the league with 38 wins. Graded POOR 1 by SGC (submitted by REA), the offered card has outstanding photo quality, even corner wear, and excellent centering. A crease in the upper right, surface paper loss on the lower right corner, and excessive writing on the blank reverse, all account for the modest assigned grade. A very presentable example of one of the premier Hall of Famers of the Old Judge set. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
