    Description

    1887 N172 Old Judge King Kelly, Boston NL (#254-5) PSA VG-EX 4. King Kelly is one of the larger-than-life characters of his time who earned his monetary-based nickname by signing a contract for the unbelievable sum of $10,000 per season. And all he had to do was play baseball. The image and surface remain fresh, and peripheral faults are mostly limited to corner wear and one wrinkle. The reverse shows some toning and slight discoloration that is common in the issue. Career-contemporary cards of Kelly are highly sought after by collectors, and this is a splendid example. Pose #254-5 Bat at Ready, 45-degrees, R/Handed with excellent photo quality. Graded PSA VG-EX 4.
