Likely the most popular and desirable of all the N173 cabinets, this example featuring Hall of Famer Cap Anson depicts the popular player in dapper street clothes in the classic pose that has been reproduced countless times throughout the hobby.  Despite the lower grade, this example boasts strong image contrast (the image is often significantly faded), the Chicago captain's icy gaze fixed off-camera in an intense stare.  Owner of a .334 lifetime batting average across an astonishing 27 seasons, Anson hit under .300 just twice in his career, never posting an average below .285.  This example has been graded PR 1 (MK) by PSA, primarily due to visible foxing and staining.  A pinhole is visible at the top center, common with cabinet photos.  Some mild surface edge wear is apparent as well.  An attractive, collector-grade example of one of the most popular and highly sought-after of all 19th Century cabinets.
