    N172 JOHN WARD. The challenging in pursuing the galaxy of standard Old Judge cards is a daunting task, even for the most determined collector.  A larger body of enthusiasts are content in attaining the issue's several Hall of Famers, and we make available here that card of Monte Ward from Duke's issue of 1887.  This one has been trimmed to a length of 2 1/4", thus excluding the sponsor's identity.  (From the mildly rounded corners, we'd guess that this may have been a 19th Century protest against tobacco.)  That consideration aside, this is a splendid photo image of the immortal shortstop.  As mentioned, it has minor rounding at the corners, yet the card is otherwise immensely clean, presenting as apparent EX.
