Strong image, one of just 23 cards from the N172 issue to feature two players, with both players listed on the card.  Featuring Hall of Famer Tim Keefe and infielder Danny Richardson, the card pictures Keefe fielding a thrown ball, as Richardson slides head first into the base in front of them.  An example of the poor grading standards with respect to N172 cards, this example is rich in contrast, the lettering dark and legible, the image clear.  The card centering is also strong, with some light corner wear evident.  A few tiny marks on the otherwise blank back are largely responsible for the grade, another example of an Old Judge with a pleasing image and strong technical attributes, reduced in grade by a meaningless flaw while other examples with barely visible images attain higher technical grades.
