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. Piecing togther the entire set is a monumental task in many ways. My goal is simply to acquire what I can, and enjoy the ride along the way

I also collect the occasional Deadball Era Type Card.

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