Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. 1888 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer Hugh Duffy (fielding-hands chin high, right heel behind left leg, "Chicago"). Very attractive rookie card example with 1888 copyright date. Bright, crisp, and perfectly clean, both front and back. The card is also very well centered, with excellent photo quality, and no creases. Only some very light, even corner wear (a little more in the upper right) is responsible for keeping this gem from a higher technical grade; it otherwise certainly has an overall Excellent appearance. Hugh Duffy is credited with one of the greatest single seasons in the history of baseball. Not only did he bat a record .440 in 1894 but he also captured the triple crown by hitting 18 home runs and knocking in 145 RBIs, both incredible numbers at the time. This is a very impressive, crisp, clean, high-grade N172 example of Hugh Duffy dating from his rookie season. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,998
