    Description

    1911 T205 Piedmont Christy Mathewson SGC 86 NM+ 7.5 - The Finest SGC Example! This simply stunning artifact earns high marks in each and every category of judgment (they even spelled his name correctly!) beginning, of course, with the identity of the man it honors. The inaugural class Hall of Fame pitcher is captured just near the apex of his storied career, framed against a vibrant vista of gold and deep green. His face conveys the look of determination that would earn him a third place tie with G.C. Alexander on the career victories chart. Joining the most famous (Wagner, Cobb, Plank) and infamous (Merkle, Cicotte) ballplayers of the age, Matty stands as one of the key components from the comprehensive T205 card issue, though this particular representation stands as the finest example of the 155 total cards graded by SGC. The centering is testament to fine American engineering, the colors have retained their rich vibrancy and the surfaces are beyond compare. Sharp corners indicate a lonely life free from human touch. It's simply one of the finest examples from the T205 Gold Borders edition. An incredibly tempting target for the most discriminating Mathewson or T205 collector.
