Graded VG+ 3.5 by SGC (submitted by REA). Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson (dark cap) with a very desirable Cycle 460 advertising reverse, ranked by T206Resource.com as the seventeenth toughest back (with some almost impossible backs like Ty Cobb, Brown Old Mill, and Brown Lenox ahead of it). The T206 Christy Mathewson dark cap pose is one of the most recognizable cards in all of card collecting. The offered example is extremely pleasing, with strong colors and light wear to the corners (a bit more on the upper left). Outstanding centering, with a natural diamond cut along the bottom edge. Perfectly clean both front and back. The important Cycle 460 advertising reverse is boldly printed. This is a very attractive scarce-back example of this classic Christy Mathewson tobacco card. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
