Graded VG 40 by SGC. Very attractive 1887 N172 Old Judge portrait example of Cap Anson. The offered example features a strong portrait of the nineteenth century's greatest star. The card has a little general wear, including rounded corners, and very light soiling on the reverse, but no creases, and a very impressive overall appearance, especially for the grade. The quality of the photograph is relatively strong for this card, which is sometimes very light on Anson Old Judges, and with excellent contrast between the portrait and the background (which is also sometimes a problem with this card). This is a very impressive mid-grade N172 Cap Anson, one of the most important cards in the Old Judge set and one of the nineteenth century's most desirable and classic cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,644
