Outstanding midgrade example of Hall of Famer Tommy McCarthy, one of nine different poses of McCarthy known in the N172 Old Judge Cigarettes issue.  Catalogued as card #301-7, this example has been graded VG-EX 4 (MK) by PSA, though the image quality and sharpness suggest a higher grade, particularly given the standards grading companies employ with the Old Judge issue.  The MK qualifier appears due to some lightly erased markings on the reverse, completely irrelevant to the eye appeal of the card and yet heavily weighted in the technical grade.  An exceptionally strong card that would not look out of place in a higher holder.
