1888 N172 Old Judge portrait of Hall of Famer Harry Wright. Very attractive example of one of the rarest of all Old Judge Hall of Famers. 1888 copyright date. There are three different poses of baseball's Harry Wright in the Old Judge set, as manager of the Philadelphia Nationals. All are portraits. Each is extremely rare. The offered example presents as Fr-Gd, with a vertical crease and a barely visible mark on the back. The photograph is a little light in some areas, which is a common characteristic of most N172 Harry Wright cards. Slight trimming to multiple edges is responsible for the SGC Authentic designation. This is an attractive example of one of Harry Wright's few baseball cards, and one of the most important cards in the Old Judge series. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
