Graded EX 60 by SGC (submitted by REA). Exceptionally attractive example of one of the three classic poses of Christy Mathewson from the T206 White Borders series, featuring an Old Mill advertising back. The T206 Christy Mathewson dark cap pose is one of the most recognizable cards in all of card collecting. This example has a bold image, near-perfect centering, vibrant colors, and perfect registration. This is very sharp-looking card, extremely bright and crisp, with four square corners displaying only very light wear. The Old Mill advertisement on the reverse is boldy printed and centering slightly to the 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. A very strong card of this Hall of Fame pitcher that would enhance or upgrade virtually any T206 set or Hall of Fame collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
