Outstanding card of St. Paul Saints manager John Barnes, decked out in full top hat and tails, watch dangling from his pocket.  Despite SGC's grade of GOOD 2, the card is a perfect example of how image quality on an N172 Old Judge is far more important than numerical grade; the card does exhibit wear and some discoloration along the top edge, with some heavier wear and soiling on the back.  An upper-right corner crease is also evident.  Regardless, a stunning image and a spectacular photo; hard to believe this is a baseball card.
