Graded EX 60 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level by SGC with none higher! Stunning high-grade sample of one of the most revered of all nineteenth-century baseball-card issues: the N173 Goodwin Old Judge cabinet card series. The offered card features Charlie Ferguson (pose #157-2) of the Philadelphia Quakers. The image on this card is very bold, with strong contrast and tremendous detail. The extraordinary quality of the photograph allows for one to see even the laces on his shoes. Very bright, crisp, and clean, both front and back (an extremely faint vertical wrinkle on the reverse may be responsible for this card not grading even higher). This is an exceptionally high quality example from one of the nineteenth century's most substantial and highly regarded sets. Reserve $500.
