    1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal 150/649OP Christy Mathewson (White Cap) PSA NM-MT 8 - Pop Two, One Higher With This Brand/Series/Factory Combination. In the rough and tumble Dead Ball Era of our national pastime, when the sport was populated by brawling drunks and illiterate farmhands, Matty was recognized almost as much for his gentlemanly comportment as he was for his remarkable Hall of Fame abilities. As commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis famously eulogized the fallen baseball hero, "He was an inspiration to everybody, and may we have more of his kind." The 373-game winning right-hander appears here in his pitching prime, the three-season production span of the hobby's most popular tobacco issue finding Big Six averaging twenty-six victories and 158 strikeouts annually with an earned run average at a microscopic 1.70.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. It's a clear tribute to Matty's popularity that he is honored three times within the T206 issue. This is the "White Cap" variant and one of the finest examples ever submitted to PSA. The spoiled specialist will bemoan the fact the back displays the commonly seen "Sweet Caporal - 150 Subjects" ad but we upped the ante quite a bit with the scarce factory 649 overprint caption. Overall, PSA has graded over 800 cards. There are less than 35 confirmed with this brand/series/factory combination. This is one of only two graded NM-MT with just one graded higher.
