This 1887 N172 Old Judge of Hall of Famer Mickey Welch is graded SGC 50/4. Mislabeled on its flip as an N167, it is actually an N172. Numbered 486-1 and entitled, "Pitch, R/Hand head high" Smiling Mickey is noted for his strikeout record, which is unequalled to this day. This record was set by the 307 game winner in 1884 when he struck out the first nine batters in a game against Cleveland. An amazing pitcher in his day, he won 44 games in 1885 for the New York Giants and thirty or more games on three other occasions. A clean card of the hall of famer, which displays a slight pink hue commonly found on many Old Judges.
