1888 N173 Old Judge Cabinet Yank Robinson

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,057.50

1888 N173 Goodwin Old Judge cabinet card of Yank Robinson of St. Louis (batting pose). Robinson was one of the key members of the World Champion St. Louis Browns team led by Charles Comiskey in the 1880s. These classic nineteenth-century premiums were available to collectors only by mail in exchange for coupons issued with Old Judge tobacco products. Very similar in design to but much larger than the classic N172 Old Judges, Old Judge cabinets are among the most highly regarded and substantial of all nineteenth-century issues. When these premiums were ordered by mail, the consumer actually chose the player to be received. The photograph is in Excellent condition, with fine contrast. The mount has light corner wear (predominately the upper left and lower right). The reverse has some minor soiling. This is a very attractive sample of one of card collecting’s most substantial and desirable cabinet-card issues. In Very Good condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,057.50
