1906 Ullman Postcards Christy Mathewson

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $2,350.00

Graded POOR 10 by SGC. Ullman postcard of Christy Mathewson, the key to the set from this extremely rare and attractive issue. This set of postcards is noteworthy both for its exciting design and great rarity. Produced to commemorate the Giants’ 1905 Championship season, the set features exclusively Giants. The fronts feature black-and-white images surrounded by a wood-grain designed border. This beauty has been harshly graded POOR 10 by SGC due to a small tear on the lower left edge (no paper loss, with the appearance of a crease) which has been reinforced with tape on the reverse. Some light creases in the borders, none of which affect the image area. The postcard reverse is addressed and mailed as intended. Without reference to the tiny tear, we grade this card Very Good condition. This is one of the most striking and visually exciting of all Christy Mathewson cards. It is also one of the rarest of all Christy Mathewson cards, with probably fewer than ten examples known. This is the first 1906 Ullman Mathewson that we have ever handled. This card was miraculously found among, and was the highlight of, a collection of mostly comic baseball postcards which was presented for us to review. 3.5 x 5.5 inches. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $2,350.00
