    1910-11 T3 Turkey Red Cabinets Christy Mathewson #27 Checklist Back PSA EX 5. This cherished image of Christy Mathewson - posed calmly but resolutely, ready to throw - seems to capture the essence of its time in baseball history. The Cabinet's generous proportions enable the viewer to discern such nuances as a wrinkle in the Hall of Famer's uniform, the hand-strength as his glove envelops the ball, and even the ghostly structures and clouds in the distance. The scene begets a feeling of tranquility, but the great hurler's poise and his competitive fire - ready to become unleashed - are somehow evident, too. A marvelous instance of baseball-card-as-art, this sought-after premium stands as one of the hobby's visual delights.

    Within a total Population Report cohort of just under 60 pieces, PSA has placed only five copies ahead of this crystal-clear Mathewson rendering. Its player image is impeccably bright and unsullied, and the Checklist Back (outlining the promotion's premium offer, along with a checklist itemizing Baseball and Boxing subjects from #'s 1 to 76, inclusive) has retained full fidelity in its printing. Condition liabilities - none of which impinge upon the observer's enjoyment of the piece - include a tiny surface fault at the right-side border on the reverse, a hint of age-toning at the top margin on the front, and very light traces of past handling at the corners.
