Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. 1887 N172 Old Judge card of Hall of Famer Pud Galvin (pose #177-2). Galvin retired as one of baseball's all-time pitching leaders in wins (sixth), losses (second), complete games (639, second), innings pitched (second), and shutouts (57, tied for tenth). He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1965. This is an extremely attractive card with a perfectly clean front, outstanding picture quality and contrast, a light crease in the upper left corner, and even corner wear. There is a purple ink stamp with the name of the original owner ("George Boehm") and a pencil notation ("0225") on the blank reverse. This is a very striking example of one of Galvin's most impressive cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000.
