Description

    1911-14 D304 Brunners Bread Christy Mathewson SGC 70 EX+ 5.5. Choosing to focus on the dynamics of his throwing motion and the aura of his on-field determination, this sought-after and rare D304 bread insert leaves aside the more pedestrian Christy Mathewson portrayals of the era. The commonly seen depictions that accompanied tobacco, for example, were more apt to focus on the facial likeness of the future Hall of Famer, concentrating to a greater extent on his "All-American boy," matinee-idol features than the athletic form responsible for the authorship of 373 career wins and a pair of pitching's Triple Crowns. Sometimes, as here, a small, geographically marginalized establishment goes against a prevailing trend in putting together its product, with a successful result, and that description fairly applies to this sought-after and poignant Mathewson collectible from the Buffalo, New York-based General Baking Company.

    A "1 of 2" at its SGC tier, this enviable piece stands with just one other (none higher) at the summit level of its twelve-card census. Although fragile in construction and inherently vulnerable to the effects of handling, this specimen has retained possession of a fresh-looking appearance and a bright, unimpeded player illustration. Light wear has been relegated to the outermost periphery, and is truly observable only at the bottom-edge corners' tips. Front and back surfaces are distinguished by commendable print clarity, with both aspects of the card inspiring the viewer's full satisfaction.
