Presented is an 1888-1889 Old Judge Cabinet featuring 19th century baseball icon Big Dan Brouthers of the Boston Beaneaters. The crystal clear image of this hulking slugger shows him poised with his lumber in his period uniform complete with a handle-bar mustache. The card, however, has been altered with approximately 5/8 missing from the lower portion of the piece. Unfortunately this is the section of the card that displayed the manufacturer so this could be either the Old Judge version or the more desirable Dogs Head version. The overall measurements of this rare item are 4 1/8 x 5 7/8 as the gold trimmed edges have been removed. The reverse is the standard pale yellow and exhibits a light surface crease across the upper portion of the treasure. Even with these faults, this extremely rare cabinet portraying one of the true superstars of the deadball era will command serious interest among collectors, most of whom have never even seen this relic.
