Clear and well-preserved "bat at ready" pose of Hall of Famer "Old Hoss" Radbourn, one of the most highly-prized Hall of Famers in the N172 issue, also known as pose 377-3. The ironman pitcher managed a "mere" 24 wins in 1887 (he holds the record, most assuredly never to be broken, of 60 wins in a season, which he did for the Providence Grays in 1884 over the course of a whopping 75 games). PSA 2.5 in grade, a well-developed image of Ol' Hoss is on display here. The corners exhibit some light rounding, though the overall appearance is stronger than the assigned grade.  We assume the technical downgrade is due to light but visible staining on the reverse, certainly nothing that interferes with the aesthetic appeal of the card.
