    1909 E92 Dockman & Sons Christy Mathewson SGC 86 NM+ 7.5 - Pop One, The Finest SGC Example! "He was an inspiration to everybody and may we have more of his kind," spoke a doleful Kenesaw Mountain Landis at the 1925 memorial service for the future posthumous Hall of Fame inductee. "His sense of justice, his integrity, and sportsmanship made him far greater than Christy Mathewson the pitcher." Though baseball's first Commissioner had been recruited by Major League Baseball to ferret out its worst in the midst of the 1919 Black Sox scandal, Landis was able to recognize the game's best as well. It was a sentiment shared by essentially every player, teammate or adversary, which ever encountered Big Six on the playing field.

    The E92 Dockman & Sons series was the introduction for many into this fascinating class of cards. Mathewson serves as one of most desirable components within the E92 Dockman roster. This glorious portrait of a man captured doing what he was born to do resonate with hobbyists thanks to a full palette of hues, precise composition.

    The offered card has been graded SGC 86 NM+ 7.5. We find nothing that contradicts the SGC assessment. SGC has reviewed over 1,350 Dockman & Sons cards, a mere eight rate as high with three rated higher. For Mathewson, this is the finest example in a SGC holder. A worthy "Pop One" champion for a true baseball legend.
