Graded GOOD+ 2.5 by PSA. Attractive modestly graded Christy Mathewson card from the T205 Gold Border series, one of the most popular of all 1910-era tobacco issues. Bright and crisp, both front and back. The card displays excellent centering (slightly high), perfect registration, bold colors, moderate creasing, and light wear on the corners (more so on the upper right). The Polar Bear reverse has a few light tobacco stains and bold blue text. This is a highly presentable example of Christy Mathewson, one of baseball's greatest legends, from one of collecting's most classic and condition-sensitive sets. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
