1887 N172 Old Judge Connie Mack
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $4,350.00
Graded EX 60 by SGC. Extremely desirable 1887 N172 Old Judge of Connie Mack (hands-on-knees pose) dating from his playing days as a catcher with the Washington Nationals. There are only three poses of Connie Mack in the Old Judge set. All are rare and highly prized by collectors. In our experience, we have found this hands-on-knees catching pose to be the rarest of the three. With exceptional contrast, very little corner wear, centered slightly to the right. On this card we can actually see the stitching on the baseball suspended on a string in front of Mack. We grade this card Vg-Ex due to a few pinpoint background age spots and a very light stain in the foreground, but the card is otherwise very crisp, and we can understand, based on overall visual appeal, the SGC EX grade. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $4,350.00
