One of the more desirable subjects in the N172 issue and one of the more highly sought-after 19th Century Hall of Famers in the hobby in general, this particularly attractive card features Mike "King" Kelly. Graded VG+ 3.5 by SGC, the card boasts outstanding contrast, with a clear, dark image and a relatively clean surface. The "$10,000 Kelly" card is checklisted as card #254-7, one of ten different Kelly poses in the N172 issue. Kelly received the nickname "$10,000 Kelly" because he was sold to Chicago by Boston for the princely sum after the 1886 season. Kelly's place in baseball history is well-commented, and a "$10,000 Kelly" card is an important addition to any quality prewar card collection.
