Description

    1915 Cracker Jack Christy Mathewson #88 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. A dream will come true for one collector here, as Heritage presents one of the finest known E145-2 Cracker Jack cards to be placed upon the auction block. Those with even a passing knowledge of the baseball collectibles can appreciate the scarcity and desirability of any high grade Mathewson baseball card. Mathewson's illustrious career was largely cemented in history by the time this card came to market. His career earned Matty a well-justified place in Cooperstown's inaugural class of five legends of the game. A hero off the field as well, Christy's death by pneumonia in 1925 was the delayed result of a poisonous gas attack occurring during his service in World War I. Issued only a year shy of his retirement from professional baseball, the multi-colored portrait is of a very young Mathewson, printed with a alarmingly high degree of precision. His image and surrounding flawless red field are complimented by the "Cracker Jack BALL PLAYERS" tag line. The borders are bright and fresh, the back is a strong strike resulting in fully legible lettering. The lower right corner shows the fragile printer's guide line suggesting this card was produced early in the print run.
