Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. This is one of only two examples graded at this level by SGC with none graded higher Very attractive example of this key Hall of Famer from the classic T202 Hassan Triple Folders set: #45 "Devlin Gets His Man" featuring Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson and Arthur Devlin (Rustlers) on the end panels. Two variations of this card exist, one picturing Devlin with the Giants and one picturing him with the Rustlers. The Rustlers variation, offered here, is the tougher of the two. Bright and crisp, both front and back, with snow-white borders, bold colors, flawless registration, and four sharp corners. There is a very subtle irregular factory cut along the top and a hint of printing roller marks, both characteristic of T202s. This is a magnificent example, which would be very much at home in the finest T202 set or collection, or would be a highlight for any high-grade Christy Mathewson or prewar Hall of Fame card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
