    Description

    1910-11 T3 Turkey Red Christy Mathewson #27 SGC 60 EX 5 - Only Two Higher. This cherished image of Christy Mathewson - posed calmly but resolutely, ready to throw - seems to capture the essence of its time in baseball history. The Cabinet's generous proportions enable the viewer to discern such nuances as a wrinkle in the Hall of Famer's uniform, the hand-strength as his glove envelops the ball, and even the ghostly structures and clouds in the distance. The scene begets a feeling of tranquility, but the great hurler's poise and his competitive fire - ready to become unleashed - are somehow evident, too. A marvelous instance of baseball-card-as-art, this sought-after premium stands as one of the hobby's visual delights. Graded SGC 60 EX 5. Within a total Population Report of exactly 50 submissions, this card is one of only five at the EX 5 level with two others rated higher. This crystal-clear rendering is impeccably bright and unsullied, and the Checklist Back (outlining the promotion's premium offer, along with a checklist itemizing Baseball and Boxing subjects from #'s 1 to 75, inclusive) has retained full fidelity in its printing affected by surface staining from prior scrapbook storage - its' lone condition liability aside from some modest corner tip wear and a lone dust shadow in the lower right.
