1887 N172 Old Judge Mike "King" Kelly - Boston Portrait

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,856.00

Graded POOR 10 by SGC. Exceptionally bold 1887 N172 Old Judge portrait card of Hall of Famer Mike "King" Kelly with "Boston" on jersey, identified as "$10,000 Kelly." All Old Judge portrait cards are very desirable. This portrait pose, featuring Mike "King" Kelly with Boston, is one of the most desirable cards in the Old Judge set. The card features a very bold portrait, with outstanding contrast, a minor crease along the top border, and evenly rounded corners. Pencil markings on the blank reverse are largely responsible for the harsh grade assigned by SGC. Without reference to the reverse notations, the card is in Vg to Vg-Ex condition and, most important (as can easily be seen), this card has outstanding eye appeal. This is a striking example of one of Kelly's most impressive cards, and one of the most desirable Hall of Famer poses in the Old Judge set. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,856.00
