Extremely attractive collection of eight high-quality N172 Old Judges, each graded and encapsulated by SGC. Each of these cards has an extraordinarily strong image with great photo contrast and detail. This collection consists of the following: #29-2 Bishop (Pittsburg, FAIR 20, 1887 copyright), 31-1 Bligh (Columbus, POOR 10, 1889 copyright), 153-1 Farrar (Philadelphia, FAIR 20, 1887 copyright), 160-1 Fields (pictured with Tiernan, Pittsburg, GOOD+ 35, 1887 copyright), 187-1 Gilks (Clevelands, GOOD 30), 227-3 Hines (Washington, GOOD+ 35, 1887 copyright), 239-1 Hudson - Brown's Champions (Authentic [Skinned], 1887 copyright), and 278-4 Long (Kansas Citys, FAIR 20, 1888 copyright). This is a very sharp-looking collection of eight high-quality cards, pulled by REA from a much larger collection of N172 Old Judges offered in this auction, specifically to create a small but high-quality N172 lot, with each card chosen for its exceptional photo quality, contrast, and overall eye-appeal. Total: 8 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
