Graded EX-MT+ 6.5 by BVG. Stunning EX-MT+ example of one of the three classic poses of Christy Mathewson from the T206 White Borders series. The T206 Christy Mathewson dark cap pose is one of the most recognizable cards in all of card collecting. This example has a particularly bold image which really "jumps" from the card, vibrant colors, and perfect registration. This is very sharp-looking card, extremely clean both front and back, with four square corners displaying only very light natural wear (predominately the lower left). Centered just a hint toward the top left. This is a beautiful card! With patience, outstanding examples of card collecting's great vintage classics can sometimes be found in a grade that does not require many thousands of dollars. This is such a case. Piedmont advertising on the reverse. The equivalent SMR value for an EX-MT 6 (no half grade values are available) is $2,650. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++.
