Graded NM+ 86 by SGC. Highest-graded example! Ultra high-grade N172 Old Judge example of pitcher Al Mays (pose #299-3) from the Columbus Solons of the American Association. 1889 copyright. This card is exceptional in every way! Sharp and striking image with outstanding photo contrast. Near-perfect centering, flawless surface, and four square corners displaying only the slightest touches of wear under close inspection. Bright and clean reverse with four tiny age spots (mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy). A photographic gem with large, full borders, this card would be an outstanding addition to any N172 Old Judge collection or serve as an ideal sample card from this iconic nineteenth-century set. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
