Seldom-seen card of young New York Giants mascot Willie Breslin, the same young man pictured on the famous Old Judge Buck Ewing "Ewing & Mascot" card from the issue.  Breslin was a popular enough figure to have been given his own card in the set, in addition to the Ewing/Mascot card.  Graded GOOD+ by SGC, the card is sharp, the image faded (as is the case with so many photographic cards from the era), with a stain on the reverse that seems likely to have been caused by clear tape.
