Graded GOOD+ 2.5 by SGC (submitted by REA). This is a very attractive 1889 N172 Old Judge rookie card of Hall of Famer Hugh Duffy (pose #135-1). Bright and crisp, with a solid photo contrast and modest corner wear. The blank reverse displays multiple creases, which is responsible for the assigned grade. Hugh Duffy is credited with one of the greatest single seasons in the history of baseball. Not only did he hit a record .440 in 1894 but he also captured the triple crown with 18 home runs and 145 RBI, both incredible numbers at the time. This is a very impressive N172 example of Hugh Duffy dating from his rookie season.  Reserve $300.
