Description

Pre-War Hall of Famer! Graded 60 EX 5 by SGC. Confirmed as post 478-9 in the 1887 N172 Old Judge series. John Montgomery Ward, was not only an immensely talented baseball player, but his principled protection of his fellow players helped change how the game was staged. The Keystone native fields his position on the offered "throwing, right hand forward, left profile" pose. This action shot presents beautifully with perfectly contrasted imagery that is framed by four sharp corners, relatively accurate centering and a crease-free surface. The blank reverse is problem-free. A microscopic wrinkle on the middle right edge prevents an even higher technical grade.
