1887 N172 John Clarkson CHI Right Hand, Right Profile - PSA EX 5 (Highest Graded!)

This lot has closed

Estimate: $1200+

Description

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 clean reverse completes the package. Of the seven Clarkson cards within the N172 Old Judge set, this is arguably his most difficult to find pose. Graded by PSA EX 5, the highest PSA graded example.
