Graded GOOD+ 2.5 by SGC (submitted by REA). Very pleasing 1887 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer Mike "King" Kelly (#254-7 pose), identified as "$10,000 Kelly." Kelly earned this nickname when he was sold from Chicago to Boston following the 1886 season for this then-unheard-of sum. The card displays slightly rounded corners and outstanding image contrast. The blank reverse has light soiling and minor creases. This is a very presentable N172 Old Judge of the legendary Mike "King" Kelly, one of nineteenth-century baseball's greatest stars. Reserve $1,000.
