1888 N172 Old Judge Jake Beckley
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,763
Graded EX 60 by SGC. 1888 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer Jake Beckley (fielding, ball knee high). 1888 copyright date. This is a very attractive card with no creases, light, even corner wear, and, as is often the case with Old Judges, the contrast is a little light (which is typical for this particular card). Beckley is a very difficult to find Hall of Famer in the Old Judge set. The blank reverse is virtually flawless. Beckley is baseball’s all-time leader in games played at first base. During his twenty Major League seasons, he batted .300 or better thirteen times, including six straight years, 1899-1904. This is a very clean, crisp N172 example of Beckley from his rookie season. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,763
