Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA (submitted by REA). Outstanding mid-grade 1887 N172 Old Judge example of Kid Madden (pose #288-2) with the Boston Beaneaters. 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 light corner wear and a crisp image. The blank reverse has scattered spots of light toning. This is a very striking mid-grade example from the most important of all nineteenth-century sets. Reserve $200.
