Presented are four of the eight Christy Mathewson cards from the classic 1912 T202 Hassan Triple Folder series, each graded and encapsulated by SGC. Two cards grade EX+ 70 and two cards grade EX 60. The cards are identified according to the numbers provided by the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards checklist. 1) #46 "Devlin Gets His Man" Mathewson/Fletcher. SGC EX 60. Bright and crisp, with light wear to the corners, bold colors, and centered toward the bottom. 2) #82 "Just Before the Battle" Mathewson/Fletcher. SGC EX+ 70. Striking colors, four sharp corners, and outstanding centering. The reverse has several surface scraps on the Fletcher panel and on the right portion of the center panel, which has effected the printed text. 3) #125 "Too Late For Devlin" Mathewson/Devlin (Giants). SGC EX 60. Bright colors, light wear to the corners, and centered slightly to the right with an irregular cut along the bottom. 4) #126 "Too Late For Devlin" Mathewson/Devlin (Rustlers). SGC EX+ 70. Crisp and clean with four square corners, flawless registration, excellent centering, and an irregular cut along the bottom. This is an extremely attractive collection of classic Christy Mathewson tobacco cards, representing one-half of the Mathewson cards in the T202 set, all in very desirable grades. T202 Hassan Triple Folders featuring Mathewson are great classics of the era. They also (in our opinion) happen to represent a particularly outstanding collecting value compared to other Mathewson tobacco cards, and perhaps any other 1910-era set featuring Mathewson. Total: 4 cards.
Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+.
