Graded VG 40 by SGC. Beautiful example of Mike "King" Kelly from the small "Old Judge size" N175 Gypsy Queen series. Kelly is identified simply as "$10,000 Kelly" on this card, which features him in a Boston uniform immediately following his sale to the Boston Nationals from Chicago. The photograph is particularly bold with outstanding contrast. This is a card which "jumps out" from a group. A vertical crease running the entire length of the card down the center is visible upon close inspection (more easily seen from reverse) but is not very prominent, and does not significantly impact the extremely impressive otherwise Excellent appearance of the card. This is an extremely attractive, clean card. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $3,770.00
