Description



Following the 1886 season, the Chicago White Stockings sold superstar Mike Kelly to the Boston Beaneaters for a record-shattering $10,000. The jaw-dropping figure aside, "King" Kelly continued his offensive prowess although the Beaneaters never won a National League pennant. Pose #254-4 and graded Authentic by SGC due to a combination of acute wear including being rebacked. "$10,000 Kelly" lives up to his billing on the offered 1886-87 N172 Old Judge tobacco card. The slugger tightly grips his weapon while staring intently against a pastoral backdrop. Aside from significant creasing, front/back paper loss and residue, the Hall of Fame subject and his moniker are still immediately recognizable.
