First Nine
Polo Grounds


Welcome to First Nine! This site features my vintage Baseball card collection. My primary focus is on the 1886-90 N172 Old Judge issue. My goal with this project is simply to acquire what I can, and enjoy the ride along the way.

I also collect the occasional 19th and early 20th Century Type Card.

Eventually, I plan on adding Baseball and hobby related articles and commentary. Just the cards for now.
