Description

Graded 30 Good 2 by SGC. Museum quality 1894 N142 Duke (Honest) Cabinet featuring Hall of Fame catcher Wilbert Robinson. This magnificent artifact features the backstop during his heyday with the mid-1890s Baltimore Orioles dynasty. The large 6 x 9-1/4” portrait is printed on heavy cardboard stock with the ACC N142 designation holding the distinction as the only nineteenth century full-color cabinet issue. A mild corner crease near the upper left corner along with scattered instances of obverse water staining are consistent with the technical appraisal. The blank reverse does exhibit age-induced shading, but is otherwise absent of any detractors. The centered portrait of the 1945 Cooperstown inductee is hallmarked by exceedingly bright and intricate uniform detailing along with creamy flesh tone accents. Worthy of strong consideration from any serious turn-of-the-century hobbyist. Survives as 1 of 3 total “Uncle Robbie” cabinets judged with none better.
