Graded EX 5 by PSA. Stunning high-grade example of Christy Mathewson from the 1915 Cracker Jack series. This card is a gem and in our opinion is very conservatively graded. We grade this card at least EX-MT. This has always been one of Mathewson’s most striking and popular cards. 1915 Cracker Jacks will always be one of the most highly prized and widely collected of all prewar sets. Mathewson is one of the key cards in the set, along with Cobb, Jackson, Johnson, and Wagner. The offered card is outstanding in all respects. Bright, crisp, and perfectly fresh, with flawless color, perfect registration, and four square corners (showing just the slightest hint of wear at the tips under magnification). The reverse is also crisp and clean. Beautifully centered (slightly to the left). This card was obviously once from an original "factory set" obtained by mail directly from the company. This is an extraordinary high-grade 1915 Cracker Jack example of Christy Mathewson, one of baseball's greatest legends, from one of collecting's most classic and popular sets. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $4,406
