Graded VG/EX+ 55 by SGC. Very attractive example of one of the three classic poses of Christy Mathewson from the T206 White Border series. The T206 Christy Mathewson portrait pose is one of the most popular of all T206s, and one of the most highly regarded of all Mathewson cards. This example has a particularly bold image and extremely vibrant colors. It is almost perfectly centered, with even wear to the four corners. The Sweet Caporal advertising on the reverse is clean and well centered. This is an outstanding example of one of Mathewson’s most striking cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
