Hall-of-Fame member John Clarkson played for four different teams during a 12-year career (1882-1894). From 1885 to 1892, he was an incredibly dominant pitcher for Chicago and Boston. He led the league in victories three times, including a 53-win season in 1885 and a 49-win season in 1889. He won the NL Pitching Triple Crown in 1889. And he finished with a career total of 328 victories.

The offered card is an absolutely stunning MINT 9 gem. It has four perfectly sharp corners, with no visible wear whatsoever. Clarkson's image artwork is boldly colored, well focused, and intricately detailed. And the surface quality is absolutely extraordinary - no marks or imperfections - with a soft layer of satiny sheen. This is an incredible opportunity to acquire a card featuring one of the 19th century's most important players, from one of the most beautiful and popular sets ever issued, in an incredible state of preservation.
