Graded FR 1.5 by SGC (submitted by REA). Extremely attractive low-grade example of Hall of Famer Tim Keefe from this very popular and colorful set of fifty, which includes just eight baseball players, issued by Old Judge and Gypsy Queen Cigarettes. Featuring a portrait of Keefe, one of the nineteenth century's most legendary pitchers, this example displays bright colors, flawless registration, and modest corner wear. Centered slightly toward the top, with a small spot of light discoloration on the bottom left of the blue background. The clean checklist reverse is clean with a back stamp reading "Bobbie P. Backus" (likely the card's original owner) visible at the very bottom. Without the back stamp, this card would have almost certainly received a higher technical grade! A beautiful example of a classic nineteenth-century baseball card of one of the era's greatest stars from one of card collecting's most popular and highly regarded issues Reserve $200.
