1887 N174 Old Judge Boxers Collection (5)
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $3,525.00
Collection of five extraordinarily rare nineteenth-century boxing tobacco cards, each graded and encapsulated by SGC: Tom Chandler (GOOD 30), Jack Dempsey (VG 40), Jack Fogarty (VG 40), George La Blanche (VG/EX 50), and Tommy Warren (EX 60). This is great-looking group of N174 Old Judges, with exceptionally strong, bold images. N174s are very similar to the N172 Old Judge baseball series, but considerably rarer. In fact, if these were nineteenth-century baseball cards of similar rarity and condition, each card would sell for many thousands of dollars. This is a very attractive group of cards featuring prizefighters from one of the rarest of all the nineteenth-century tobacco issues. Total 5 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,525.00
