Graded VG 40 by SGC. This is one of only two examples graded at this level with none higher by SGC! Superb Ullman postcard of Christy Mathewson, the key to the set from this extremely rare and attractive issue. This set of postcards is noteworthy both for its exciting design and great rarity. Produced to commemorate the Giants’ 1905 Championship season, the set features exclusively Giants. The fronts feature black-and-white images surrounded by a wood-grain designed border. This beauty presents exceptionally well, with a crisp central image, light touches of wear at the corners, and a small, almost imperceptible, crease along the right border. The reverse is entirely clean and has never been written on or postmarked. This is one of the most striking and visually exciting of all Christy Mathewson cards. It is also one of the rarest of all Christy Mathewson cards, with probably fewer than ten examples known. This is only the second 1906 Ullman Mathewson that we have ever handled. An incredible specimen worthy of even the most advanced Christy Mathewson, postcard, or sample-card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
