    1909-11 T206 Tolstoi Christy Mathewson (Dark Cap) PSA NM 7 - The Highest Graded Tolstoi! It is so nice to say that after 105 years we still have stunning examples of T206 cards that don't seem to have aged much or have been handled with any regularity. We all know the legend that is Christy Mathewson. A quick look at this "Dark Cap" variant we immediately see the crisp hues, vivid white border and precise centering. Corners show modest wear both to the naked eye and under magnification. This is one of the finer examples on record with any brand but take s place of honor once one factors in the scarce "Tolstoi Cigarettes" advertising. Graded PSA NM 7. Of the almost 1,400 examples graded by PSA, only fourteen are confirmed with the Tolstoi brand. This is the highest graded example!
