    Description

    1910-11 M116 Sporting Life Christy Mathewson (Pastel Background) SGC 86 NM+ 7.5- Pop One, One Higher. The Dead Ball Era of our national pastime was a sport populated by gamblers, drinkers and famous illiterate farmhands. In grand contradiction, Christy Mathewson was recognized almost as much for his gentlemanly comportment as he was for his remarkable Hall of Fame abilities. The 373-game winning right-hander appears here in his pitching prime, the two-season production span of the hobby's most popular issues found the Big Six averaging 26 victories, 162 strikeouts on an earned run average at a microscopic 1.94. Nice corners, clean surfaces and a flawless border. This is the only example graded at the SGC 86 NM+ 7.5 level, with one rated higher.

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