Bobby Mathews is an extremely underrated 19th Century pitcher, winner of 297 games over a 15-year career in the National Association, National League and American Association between 1871 and 1887.  He won 30 games three seasons, 42 games in 1874, and more than 20 games four times, with a lifetime ERA of 2.86.  This example of his N172 card has been graded VG 3 by SGC, with some mild image fading consistent with the issue, and visible corner wear, particularly at the lower-right.  Regardless, a strong card of a borderline Hall of Famer.
