1887 N172 Old Judge Collection of 62
Starting Bid - $3,000.00, Sold For - $16,100.00
Exceptionally clean group of N172 Old Judges including 56 cards ranging from Ex to Nr/Mt condition (mostly Ex), plus an additional six cards in slightly lesser grades. The collection is highlighted by a Comiskey Brownie Champ portrait in Excellent condition. A complete listing of the 56 Ex or better cards follows: Comiskey, Foutz (Brownie Champ portrait, Ex with scrapbook paper remnants on reverse), Bishop, Burch, Burns (KC), Burns (Chicago), Casey, Clarke (Clark), Clements, Daley (Bos), Dalrymple, Daly (Chi), Dealey, Donnelly, Farrell (Wash), George, Getzein, Gilks, Gore, Hanrahan, Hatfield, Healey, Hines (Wash), Irwin (Phil), Johnston (3), Kappell, Mattimore, Maul, Murphy (NY), Nicholson (Clev), O'Brien (Bklyn), Poorman, Radford, Richardson (NY), Rooks, Schriver, Seery, Shomberg, Shreve (2), Slattery, Sprague, Stemmyer, Sutcliffe, Tate, Tebeau, Toole, Vinton, Weber, Weidman, Wheelock, Williamson, Willis, and Wise. The remaining six cards grade Vg to Vg-Ex: Burdock (portrait), Welch/Gleason (double player pose), Corcoran, Gillespie, Gilligan, and Greer (unusual "small picture/large border" style). Approximately 20 cards exhibit light glue or tape stains on their blank reverses, and a few cards have a small pricing notation in pencil, as is often the case with Old Judges. Such minor imperfections would not even have to be mentioned in the "old days" of collecting. A little back damage on Old Judges usually "comes with the territory," especially since so many cards were originally saved in scrapbook albums. This is an exceptionally clean, very carefully assembled collection of N172 Old Judges, put together by an advanced collector in the 1980s, one card at a time, with a concern for contrast and the overall eye appeal of each card. A great looking group. Total 62 cards. Reserve $3,000. Estimate $6,000/$8,000. SOLD FOR $16,100.00
