King Kelly was baseball royalty, at least in the N172 set issued by Goodwin & Company, where he had a whopping eleven poses, highlighting the various facets of his game.  This pose is designated as 254-5 by Miller, Gonsowski & Masson in their seminal Goodwin & Company guide. PSA 1 in grade, with a pinhole and paper loss seen and a very light image. The reverse exhibits the telltale signs of scrapbook removal, in the form of adhesive staining and some light paper loss.  A card with Hall-of-Fame pedigree and a career that's passed into lore.
