Graded 20 Fair 1.5 by SGC. Amos The Hoosier Thunderbolt Rusie heaves a fastball for the Indianapolis Hoosiers with the offered 1887 N172 Old Judge specimen. This debut tobacco card of the teenage sensation displays modest peripheral wear and a clean blank back. A slight surface crease along with indecipherable vintage pencil writing on the obverse accounts for the technical grade. For more details, please visit our website.
Although the flip states the card comes from the 1887 N172 Old Judge series, both the surface copywright and Rusie's debut season dates this relic to 1889.
