Extremely strong rookie card of Hall of Famer Hugh Duffy, catalogued as pose #135-3, picturing the shortstop with the Chicago White Stockings, where he spent his first two seasons.  Duffy is the author of the highest single-season batting average in major league history, batting .438 in 1894.  Duffy's career batting average was .324, which is still good for #43 all-time.

Graded EX 5 by PSA, the card is sharp and clean, with some fading to the image that is consistent with the issue.  The reverse is clean, centering slightly low on the canvas, any additional wear is mild.  The highest graded example of this pose assessed by PSA, with just one example of any Duffy pose graded higher.
