Graded NM 84 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with just one higher! Ultra high-grade N172 Old Judge example of manager James Williams (pose #501-1) from the Cleveland Blues of the American Association. 1888 copyright. Managers tend to jump out as special and unusual in any collection of Old Judges, in part because of the fancy street clothes (as seen here) in which the subjects are usually pictured. They are naturally a very popular subset of Old Judge collecting. The offered card is bright and clean, with four strong corners showing light touches of wear and a virtually flawless surface. The blank reverse is entirely clean. This is an outstanding high-grade sample of a highly desirable manager card that would be a worthy addition to any high-quality N172 Old Judge collection. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
