Graded GD 2 by SGC (submitted by REA). Extremely attractive example of Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson in his pitching motion from the classic E90-1 American Caramel series. This card is part of an exciting, fresh-to-the-hobby collection consigned to this auction by the family of a Midwestern collector who built his impressive collection over a period of many decades, beginning as a young boy in the 1930s. This caramel card is considered by many collectors to be one of Mathewson’s most striking cards. Bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, honest corner wear, and centering to the right. Moderate creasing contributes to the assigned grade. The reverse has bold black printing centered toward the top left. This is an exceptional example of a key Hall of Famer from the most popular caramel-card set of the era. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
