Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. High-grade example of pitcher John McCarthy (pose #302-1) of the Kansas City Blues from the N172 Old Judge set. 1888 copyright. Outstanding photo contrast and clarity, traits which are highly prized by nineteenth-century card collectors, and four strong corners showing light touches of wear. Centered a hint to the left. The blank reverse is clean. Very attractive high-grade example which would be an extraordinary addition to any N172 Old Judge collection or serve as an ideal sample card from this iconic nineteenth-century issue. Reserve $200.
