Graded GOOD 2 by SGC. Presented is Hall of Fame pitcher Christy Mathewson, one of the key cards from the extremely rare M110 Sporting Life cabinet set issued in 1911. Each card in the M110 set features beautiful full-color pastel artwork on the front and advertising for Sporting Life on the reverse. M110s are similar in design to, but far rarer than, the contemporary T3 Turkey Red cabinets. This one of the rarest and most beautiful of all Christy Mathewson cards. This example displays a crisp image of Mathewson and honest corner wear. The back, which displays some light surface abrasions, has a boldly printed advertisement for Sporting Life. This is an extremely attractive example of one of the most striking and rarest of all Christy Mathewson cards. Dimensions: 5-5/8 x 7-1/2 inches. Reserve $1,000.
