Sid Farrar was a defensive stopper who played catcher and first base for both the Philadelphia Quakers and Athletics. Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA, this 1888 N173 Old Judge Cabinet (hands cupped, catching) pose is the only such example judged by the third-party service. The sure-handed Farrar is depicted catching a ball thrown in his direction on the bold, bright rendition. Both the surface and reverse display superficial wear commensurate with the assigned technical grade. Perfect for the nineteenth century Type enthusiast. More on our website.
The flip on the PSA holder incorrectly identifies this card as coming from the 1887 N172 Old Judge series.
