DESCRIPTION
Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. Only example graded at this level by PSA, with just one graded higher (the other example is graded VG 3). Rare example of the 1912 T205 Gold Border "Cycle 1 Loss" printing variation of Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson. This is a relatively new discovery that has only just recently been recognized by The Standard Catalog and grading companies as a checklist addition to the T205 set. The “Cycle 1 Loss” variation error card is defined by the missing “1” from Mathewson's stats on the card’s reverse (Mathewson's pitching stats are listed as "37-1" for the 1908 season, when in actuality he lost eleven games in the 1908 season). This back variation appears only on T205 Mathewson cards with a Cycle Cigarettes back. The card is centered to the extreme left, with even wear at the corners, very little chipping to the gold borders, with a crisp portrait and a very clean surface. The back has even toning and bold black printing. The boldly printed back, of course, is particularly desirable for this variation card. This is an extremely attractive example that, as a new checklist addition, is needed in virtually every T205 master set. Because of its recent discovery and scarcity, there is no consensus on the value of this card. We are confident the auction process will provide clarity. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
