One of 23 different two-player cards in the N172 issue to list both player's names, this example features diminutive infielder Hugh "Little Nick" Nicol (5'4") standing side-by-side with 6'3" teammate "Long John" Reilly.  Goodwin & Co. added the caption "Nicol & Reilly (Long & Short)" to add some humor to the card.  Quite rare, the card has been graded PR 1 (MK) by PSA, the grade due to paper remnants and some written notations on the reverse.  The image quality and overall visual appeal are far superior to the assigned grade, some light corner and surface wear the chief condition flaws visible on the card front.  One of just three examples of this pose to have been graded by PSA.
