    1902-11 W600 Sporting Life Cabinet Christy Mathewson, Uniform PSA Good 2. The dignified Carl Horner portrait of Hall of Fame pitcher Christy Mathewson acts as the centerpiece of this rarely offered Sporting Life, the publication to which the hobby is indebted for producing the spectacular W600 cabinet premium from 1902 through 1911. The likeness is the same illustration employed on other Mathewson card collectibles like his Cracker Jack entry but this card saw circulation close to the 1902 date the portrait was supposed to have been taken. Graded PSA Good 2, the thick card mount has a small segment of edge chipping, areas where it appears tape was removed and perimeter toning on the reverse. The portrait of the "Big Six" is very clean and problem-free. Rarely offered, the PSA assessment is technically accurate but fails to account for the visual appeal. A key name from a difficult series considering the comprehensive scope of the issue.
