    Description

    Population one, only one superior!

    1909-11 T206 Piedmont Christy Mathewson Portrait PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. Mathewson stands as a defining figure of the sport's Dead Ball Era as much as he stands in contrast to it. In that rough and tumble period of our national pastime, when the sport was populated by brawling drunks and illiterate farmhands, Matty was recognized almost as much for his gentlemanly comportment as he was for his remarkable Hall of Fame abilities. His utter pitching supremacy is evident in his eye-popping record of 373-188--a nearly two-to-one ratio of success--and a career earned run average of just 2.13.

    An essential component in five National League Championship seasons for the New York Giants, Matty is captured at the heart of that age of dominance in this soulful portrait variant from the hobby's most important tobacco issue. The presented representation is the second-finest of its kind ever encapsulated by PSA, the sole superior example just a half-point higher.

    Masterful print work results in flawless color and registration and spectacular centering. Corners are razor-sharp, and surfaces clean. It's unquestionably one of the most well-rendered and well-preserved tobacco cards we've encountered.
