Despite the lower technical grade, a strong example of a less frequently-seen pose of this Hall of Famer, owner of a .292 lifetime batting average in a 13-year career.  The grade is accurate, with pinholes at the top and bottom of the card automatically disqualifying it from any grade higher than POOR 1, and some additional surface and edge wear at the top cementing the grade, however, the photo of McCarthy is wonderfully detailed, with bold contrast and a dark, clean background offsetting the player image.
