Graded VG 40 by SGC. 1887 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer "Chas. Comiskey, 1st B., Capt, St. Louis Browns" dating from his playing days as leader and player-manager of the legendary World Champion St. Louis Browns. This is an exceptionally attractive card, with strong photo contrast and detail, a light vertical background surface scratch (of modest consequence, and responsible for the card not receiving a much higher grade), and very light, even corner wear. The blank reverse is perfectly clean (interesting to note that close examination of the reverse reveals a slightly whiter area in the upper left in the shape of an old-fashioned paper stamp hinge, obviously the result of very careful storage long ago by a dedicated old-time collector). This is a magnificent, very high quality Hall of Famer Old Judge example of "The Old Roman," Charles Comiskey, with strong visual appeal. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,175
