Description

    1911-14 D304 Brunners Bread Christy Mathewson SGC 80 EX/NM 6. Choosing to focus on the dynamics of his throwing motion and the aura of his on-field determination, this sought-after and rare D304 Brunners 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 his "All-American" matinee-idol facial features than the athletic form responsible for the authorship of 373 career wins and a pair of pitching's Triple Crowns. Sometimes, as here, small, geographically marginalized establishment go against a prevailing trend to set their product apart, hopefully with a successful result, and that description fairly applies here. This sought-after and poignant Mathewson collectible promoting Brunners "Butter Krust" bread for the Buffalo market.

    Graded SGC 80 EX/NM 6. This enviable piece stands alone at this summit level of its sixteen-card census. Although fragile in construction and inherently vulnerable to the effects of handling, this specimen has retained possession of a fresh-looking appearance thanks to a bright, unimpeded illustration. Light wear has been relegated to the outermost corner tips, front and back surfaces are distinguished by commendable print clarity and a lack of staining or toning, with both aspects of the card inspiring the viewer's full satisfaction.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $8,000 - up.
