1889 N172 Old Judge Ed Delahanty
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,587.50
Very pleasing N172 example of Ed Delahanty, one of the rarest of all Old Judge Hall of Famers, featuring "Big Ed" in his Philadelphia Nationals uniform in 1889, his second year in the majors. Old Judges issued in 1889 are in general rarer than those issued in 1887 and 1888. All five Old Judge poses of Delahanty were issued in 1889 only, contributing to the rarity of Delahanty relative to most other N172 Hall of Famers. This card has slight wear to the corners and a tiny blemish (the size of a pinhead) at Delahanty's right elbow. Strong contrast. Slight soiling to the blank back. A very attractive card in overall Vg-Ex condition. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,587.50
