Graded VG 3 by SGC (submitted by REA). New York Giants Mascot (pose #294-1) from the N172 Old Judge set. The young mascot, Willie Breslin, is dressed in a miniature New York Giants uniform, true to form in every detail to those worn by the players. (Note: Mascot Willie Breslin appears in the Old Judge set twice. His appearance with Hall of Famer Buck Ewing on the Old Judge "Ewing and Mascot" card is one of the most well known of all nineteenth-century baseball-card images. This card of Breslin posing alone is far rarer.) The offered example has outstanding photo contrast, excellent centering, and light corner wear. The blank reverse is clean. A crease near the bottom edge is responsible for the assigned grade. This is an outstanding example of one of the most interesting cards in the entire Old Judge set. Reserve $300.
