Attractive Old Judge card picturing Tony "Count" Mullane.  Graded GOOD 2 by SGC, the image quality is strong for the grade.  Some light back damage is apparent, reducing the technical grade of the card but certainly not its eye appeal.  This is, in our opinion, a serious flaw in the grading scale with N172 cards, and a reason for collectors to ignore numerical grades in favor of eye appeal.  Regardless of technical grade, a very strong card.
