Graded by PSA EX 5. Very eye-appealing example, the highest graded PSA copy extant according to their population report for this pose. Superb image of the Hall of Fame pitcher, crisp with tremendous clarity, which is accented by four square (if not sharp) corners. The image is centered a touch to the right, with absolutely no tilt or mis-cuts, which so often occur within this issue. A perfectly c…

Graded by PSA VG-EX 4. One of the more difficult N172's to find and the first PSA has ever graded. In fact, although the card is imaged in the comprehensive book "The Photographic Baseball Cards of Goodwin & Co. 1886-1890," this card is so scarce, PSA didn't even have it in their census reporting list. This example has a superb image, clean reverse, and has the typical centering abnor…

When the sport of baseball was in its infancy, the game was so popular it was even played outdoors in winter. However, most ardent baseball fans at the time were content to pass the hot stove league wintertime away with baseball board games, which were in vogue in the late 19th century. This is a complete high-grade game set with original box and instruction booklet. In 1889, the Egerton R. Willi…

Graded by SGC GOOD 2. The fragility of the card makes it one of the most difficult issues to obtain in high grade, as these 'die-cut' Scrapps cards are paper-based (not cardboard) and were manufactured to be glued in scrapbooks, hence the name Scrapps. The die-cut nature leads the cards to be susceptible to creasing and/or tears at the neck area. Cards were issued for the two league champ…

Graded by SGC FAIR 1.5. Superb example of this very colorful and popular card. Very solid corners, clean reverse, bright blue background, and a tremendous image of Wagner. However, there is a blue ink, scripted letter "S" above Wagner's head on the front, the sole reason for the 1.5 grade. An eye-appealing example, much better than the average FAIR 1.5 graded card.
