Graded EX 60 by SGC. Only three examples have been graded higher by SGC. 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. Extremely clean, very well centered, with a hint of even wear to the corners, and no creases. The T202 Mathewson is one of the great classics of the era, and one that in our opinion happens to represent a particularly outstanding collecting value compared to other tobacco cards and perhaps any other 1910-era set featuring Mathewson. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
