Very attractive example of one of the three classic poses of Christy Mathewson from the T206 White Border series. The T206 Christy Mathewson portrait pose is one of the most popular of all T206s, and one of the most highly regarded of all Mathewson cards. The offered example is also noteworthy for its scarce Sovereign 150 advertising back. Graded GOOD 30 by SGC, this example has a particularly bold image and extremely vibrant colors. It is well centered (very slightly to the top), with even wear to the corners (a bit more to the lower two). The important Sovereign advertising is boldly printed and well centered, with a few insignificant spots of toning (mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy). This is a very desirable example of one of Mathewson’s most striking cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
