1887-90 N172 Old Judge Baseball Cards
The N172 Old Judge baseball card set consists of approximately 500 cards that measure 1-7/16" by 2-1/2". N172 cards included inside packs of Old Judge Cigarettes between 1887 and 1890, and can be recognized by "Goodwin & Co. New York" on the base of each card.
The "Browns Champions" cards from this set refer to the 13 players from the 1886 St. Louis Browns and is popular with collectors due to the subject matter and attractive pictures. A harder to find N172 subset is the "Spotted Tie" cards, which show the players, all on the 1887 New York Mets, wearing the same polka dot tie.
The N172 Old Judge set contains 25 hall-of-famers, including: N172 Cap Anson, Jacob Beckley, Dan Brouthers, Charles Comiskey, Ed Delehanty, Hugh Duffy, Buck Ewing, Clark Griffith, Billy Hamilton, Mike Kelly, Connie Mack, Kid Nichols, Wilbert Robinson & Harry Wright.
