    1887 N174 Old Judge Boxers SGC Graded Pair (2) With Rare Australian Card. Offered is a scarce pair of N174 Old Judge boxers. The pair includes Australian heavyweight Mick Dooley (SGC Authentic, trimmed ad), in a card issued only in Australia (Type 6 in America's Great Boxing Cards). The card survived about as well as Dooley did after a 24-16-5 career with most losses coming by knockout; and George Godfrey (SGC 40 VG 3, Pop Two, One Higher), this card shows the wavy "Old Judge Cigarettes" ad (Type 4 in America's Great Boxing Cards). George "Old Chocolate" Godfrey was a Canadian heavyweight who was denied a shot at the heavyweight title on the basis of race. His N174 cards are among the first North American cards to depict a black boxer. A nice card that has aged some but surfaces are largely blemish-free with only corner wear to note.
