    Description

    1915 Cracker Jack Christy Mathewson #88 SGC VG/EX+ 4.5. John Esch collection. Mathewson's illustrious career was largely cemented in history by the time this card came to market. His career earned Matty a well justified place in Cooperstown's inaugural class of five legends of the game. A hero off the field as well, Christy's death by pneumonia in 1925 was the delayed result of a poisonous gas attack occurring during his service in World War I. The multi-colored portrait is of a very young Mathewson which dates to the very early 20th century and is unique to the 1915 Cracker Jack edition. If the label read "5 EX" we don't think too many would disagree. Graded SGC VG/EX+ 4.5. The total pop is a little over seventy submissions.
