1888 N173 Goodwin Old Judge cabinet card of Hall of Famer Buck Ewing of the New York Giants (#149-2 pose). Modestly graded example of one of the most impressive of all Buck Ewing cards. All Old Judge cabinets are extremely desirable, as are all examples of Hall of Famers, and Buck Ewing is one of the most prominent of all nineteenth-century Hall of Famers. This is a very presentable example with outstanding photo contrast. The background and area identifying the player name and team is light (as made), making the identifying white-letter text and 1887 copyright difficult to read (due to the contrast of the white letters against the light background). Encapsulated as Authentic by SGC (submitted by REA), the obvious condition flaws include tape stains in all four corners and scattered black marks on front. The blank reverse has scattered foxing and a light stain on the lower-left corner. This is a very pleasing Hall of Famer example from one of the nineteenth century's most classic and revered sets. Reserve $1,000.
