Absolutely gorgeous image of Hall of Fame pitcher Tim Keefe, catalogued as card number 251-3.  Graded GOOD 2 by PSA, the primary condition issue with this card appears to be some paper loss on the back.  Part of the irony of grading cards from the N172 issue is that the backs are blank, yet grading companies often reduce technical grades dramatically due to back damage, while ignoring faded images.  In this case, the image quality is exceptional, with wonderful detail and contrast, light wear restricted to the corners and edges, with what appears to be some very slight age-related discoloration to the emulsion on the front of the card.  Otherwise a tremendous example.
