Graded VG/EX+ 55 by SGC. 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. This example has a particularly bold image and extremely vibrant colors. It is very well centered, with light wear to the corners (a bit more to the lower left) and a couple spots of surface chipping along the bottom edge. The Piedmont advertising is boldly printed and well centered, with a very slight glue spot on the reverse. This is a very desirable example of one of Mathewson’s most striking cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
