Charlie Ganzel's a study in concentration in this staged pose in the 1887 Old Judge N172 issue, one of seven identified poses of his in the set.  The flip of this SGC 1 example identifies the pose as 179-1. Between the SGC and PSA pop reports for this pose (Catch, Hands Thigh High, Detroits) there are just five identified in total.  A portion of the main image and border have stripped off in the upper right corner, which also shows signs of a slight clip, and there's a similar issue developing in the lower left corner, now protected by the SGC holder. The surface is rough in spots, though with a nicely reproduced image of Ganzel seen. The reverse is fairly clean.
