Graded VG 3 by SGC (submitted by REA). Presented is an attractive 1889 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer “Smiling” Mickey Welch of the New York Giants (pose #486-2). The offered card has outstanding photo quality, superb clarity, and four strong corners. Fresh and crisp, but modestly graded due to a small stain on the front. This is a high quality, but perhaps relatively affordable due to its modest assigned grade, example of Hall of Famer "Smiling" Mickey Welch, one of the most legendary Hall of Fame pitchers of the nineteenth century. Welch was the Major League's third 300-game winner. During his thirteen Major League seasons, he won twenty or more games nine times, including seven straight years. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1973. Reserve $300.
