Graded VG 3 by SGC (submitted by REA). Outstanding 1888 N172 Old Judge example of Harry Stovey (#440-4 pose) with the Philadelphia Athletics. 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. Bright and clean, with even corner wear and a crisp image. The blank reverse is clean with a black mark in the upper left. This is a very striking mid-grade example from the most important of all nineteenth-century sets. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
