Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. One of only ten examples graded at this level with just one higher! Exceptional example of Al Bridwell and Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson from the classic T201 Mecca Double Folders set. T201 Double Folders are one of the most condition-sensitive of all tobacco-card issues. The thin stock on which they are printed makes them especially susceptible to soft corners as well as to very slight wrinkles, creases, and edge wear. These cards were designed to be played with, folded up and down, so it is not surprising that normal handling would result in few truly high-grade examples surviving. This is a remarkably high grade example of one of the key cards in the set. Clean and crisp, with four strong corners and centering towards the bottom. Flawless reverse. Out of 8,839 T201 cards evaluated by PSA to date, approximately three percent have graded NM-MT 8 or higher! This is a superb example worthy of any world-class T201 set or Hall of Fame collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++.
