    1887 N172 Old Judge Cap Anson, Street Clothes (#11-1) SGC 35 Good+ 2.5. Cap Anson is among the most important subjects of the monumental and significant N172 Old Judge series. He is certainly one of the most important 19th Century stars as the N172 Old Judge series is certainly the most important 19th Century sports release. Oddly, he only appears in a pair of portrait poses and one is by far among the rarest Old entries. The offered specimen is the "street clothes" version and thankfully only marginally shows its age, now just over 125 years old. Light staining affects the back surface as do creases but one is partially visible on the front. Graded SGC 35 Good+ 2.5 but highly desirable in any condition. This is pose #11-1 - Bust portrait, no arms visible with a close to excellent quality photo. A significant addition for the N172 enthusiast.
