    1887-90 N172 Old Judge Amos Rusie (#395-2) PSA NM 7 - The Highest Graded Rusie in a PSA Holder! Amos Rusie is ranked #3 on the list of rarest Hall of Famers in the N172 series. He has five poses yet only sixteen cards noted on the PSA census. What a sight it must have been seeing 6'1" 200-lbs. Amos Rusie only 50 feet away (until 1893) throwing a baseball in your direction at over 90 miles per hour! He was a flame thrower who won 30+ games four times but was just as likely to lead in walks. One of the most dominant pitchers of the time, Rusie amassed 246 wins in just nine years from 1890-1898. Retirement came in 1901 after he was traded to the Reds for a promising rookie named "Mathewson."

    Our offered card is pose: #395-2 Pitch, R/hand thigh high. The caption reads: RUSIE, P., Indianapolis. Copyright 1889. Grade: PSA NM 7 - This is the highest graded N172 of Rusie on the PSA census. Photo Quality: Exceptional, probably will not find a nicer image.
