    Description

    1915 Cracker Jack Christy Mathewson #88 PSA NM-MT 8. In the rough and tumble Dead Ball Era 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. As commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis famously eulogized the fallen baseball hero, "He was an inspiration to everybody, and may we have more of his kind."

    The 373-game winning right-hander was nearing the end of that eye-popping tally when this boldly-hued beauty emerged from a box of baseball's most beloved snack food, avoiding the common danger of caramel staining while inside, and the rough hands of time in the century since. Just 117 examples have been submitted to PSA for assessment at the time of this writing, with just eight rating superior to this marvelous representation.
