Offered here is a sublimely well preserved depiction of Detroit Wolverines Hall of Famer "Big Sam" Thompson, who hit for a .406 average the same year this piece was produced.

The eye popping 1887 N172 Old Judge card of Detroit Wolverine Hall of Fame outfielder Sam Thompson (Bat at 45 degree angle, Detroits) features a crystal clear picture image with outstanding detail. Corners and edges are unusually strong for this 130 year old relic. PSA’s NM 7 assessment of the card’s condition places it in the elite position of single finest example ever graded by PSA. Furthermore, this 1/1 condition rarity is one of only 180 N172 Old Judge cards graded NM 7 by PSA from over 4,000 examples graded by that firm to date.
