    1909 E92 Dockman & Sons Christy Mathewson SGC 84 NM 7 - Pop One, Only One Higher! "He was an inspiration to everybody and may we have more of his kind," spoke a doleful Kenesaw Mountain Landis at the 1925 memorial service for the future posthumous Hall of Fame inductee. "His sense of justice, his integrity, and sportsmanship made him far greater than Christy Mathewson the pitcher." Though baseball's first Commissioner had been recruited by Major League Baseball to ferret out its worst in the midst of the 1919 Black Sox scandal, Landis was able to recognize the game's best as well, properly honoring this shimmering diamond in the Dead Ball Era rough. It was a sentiment shared by essentially every player, teammate or adversary, which ever encountered Big Six on the playing field.

    The E92 Dockman & Sons has always had a passionate following and stands as an introduction for many into this fascinating class of cards. This glorious portrait of a man captured doing what he was born to do resonates with hobbyists thanks to a full palette of hues, precise composition and a superior expression of majesty and history. Mathewson serves as one of most desirable components within the E92 Dockman roster. The offered card has been graded SGC 84 NM 7. We could go into a lengthy paragraph of positive attributes but we ask you treat yourself to the large images we provide to realize there is nothing that contradicts the SGC assessment which is based on centering. SGC has reviewed less than fifty Mathewson cards, this is the only one graded NM with one higher.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
