Extremely scarce 1887 N175 Gypsy Queen Pete Gillespie-With Bat version. The card has been graded and encapsulated by SGC FR 1.5. It has a fairly clear and focused image of Gillespie holding his bat at the ready. The edges exhibit some roughness most prevalent along the right and bottom sides. The corners are rounded and the centering is off left to right. The reverse has residue from a scrapbook in which this example obviously sat at one time. There are a series of light wrinkles along the left side which are most visible on the reverse. This is the only example graded by SGC. According to the PSA population report, they have graded one example but they do not state which version they have graded. However, upon searching through the VCP database, it appears that the PSA example was the fielding version of Gillespie which sold in 2010 making this the only graded example with bat in existence.
