    1887 N174 Old Judge Prizefighters J.H. Myers SGC 30 Good 2. Graded 30 Good 2 by SGC, this is the only example recorded to date by any grading service. No, not a boxer but a very rare entry in this elusive edition. The Sydney Rowing Club name was changed to East Sydney (spelled "Sidney" on the card) in January of 1887. The Australian based club would exist until 1904. This rare example of J.H. Myers bears the "Old Judge" bottom block letter format (a format unknown to the mighty Burdick collection) and presents much nicer than the technical grade suggests. The grade reflects rubber band residue spots on the obverse and light staining/surface chipping on the reverse. A conservative assessment even with such condition factors.
