1887-1888 N172 Old Judge SGC-Graded Collection Including Jim O'Rourke (4)
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $3,525.00
Collection of four high-grade N172 Old Judge cards, highlighted by Hall of Famer Jim O'Rourke, each graded and encapsulated by SGC: 1) Dell Darling, Chicago NL (EX/NM 80). Superb high-grade card, well centered, four sharp corners, a very strong image with a slight pink hue, and a perfectly clean reverse. 2) Jim O'Rourke, New York (C., New Yorks - bat in hand on side, EX+ 70). Strong square corners showing just the slightest hint of wear. As is often the case with Old Judges, the contrast is just a little light, but this example compares very favorably to many others. Very slight "diamond" cut. This card is extremely clean both front and back. 3) Mike Slattery, New York NL (NM 84), 1888. Strong card! Four sharp corners, virtually flawless image, and perfectly clean reverse. 4) Mike Tiernan, New York NL (VG 40), 1888. Four square corners, some very light surface cracking along the left border, weak image with poor contrast. Sharp-looking small group of Old Judges with three (out of four cards in the lot) of particularly high-quality, highlighted by Hall of Famer Jim O'Rourke. Total 4 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $3,525.00
