Catcher John Thomas "Tug" Arundel was weak with both bat and glove, lasting parts of four major league seasons and seven more in the minors.  The image here, produced by Gray Studios of Boston, corresponds with card #13-5 in the N172 Old Judge Cigarettes issue.  This example boasts outstanding image quality, the dark studio backdrop providing excellent contrast with Arundel's light uniform.  Some very light surface wear is evident, with a tiny piece of paper loss at the top left corner, not at all distracting from the eye appeal of the image.  Some minor foxing is apparent at the lower-right of the mount, and the reverse is largely clean.
