Description1887-90 N172 Old Judge N172 Old Judge Amos Rusie (#395-5) SGC Authentic. At 6'1" and 200-lbs., Amos Rusie standing only 50 feet away (until 1893) throwing a baseball in your direction at over 90 miles per hour must have been intimidating! Rusie 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. His retirement came in 1901 after he was traded to the Reds for a promising rookie named "Mathewson". Offered is pose #395-5 Bat at ready nearly horizontal. Captions reads: RUSIE (paper with "New York" is covering words). Encapsulated SGC Authentic. Team and Copyright: (Illegible). Photo quality: Faded.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
