Gorgeous Old Judge cabinet photo of Beaneaters catcher Charlie Ganzel. Ganzel more of a utility player who did not join the Boston team until 1889 had a 14-year career spent mostly with Boston. The card submitted to SGC by Love of the Game and graded VG+ 45 is fresh to the graded hobby and is the highest-graded example known. The card boasts an outstanding image with excellent contrast for the issue the baseball field studio backdrop so common to Old Judge photos clearly visible. The corners and edges exhibit slight wear and some minor markings on the image itself are largely responsible for the grade. N173 Old Judge cabinets are extremely popular desirable by many advanced collectors. This is a beautiful example.
