Mid-Summer Classic Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Eye appealing GD PSA 2 Ed Delahanty(Throwing, Right Hand Head High) 2d B., Phila. from the historic 1887-90 Old Judge Tobacco series. Front features a very strong picture image of the Philadelphia Phillies Hall of Fame outfielder. Back has some evidence of being glued into an album at one time, leading to the the low GD rating. Delahanty, who fell to his death during the 1903 season from the International Bridge and went over Niagara Falls, was the reigning American League Batting Champion. Delahanty's .3458 career batting average still ranks #5 All-Time. Card displays more VG-EX than G. Great looking card! Pose 123-4. (From the excellent publication "Photographic Baseball Cards of Goodwin & Co. 1886-1890").
