    1922 Christy Mathewson Big Six Indoor Baseball Game. Hitting toy store shelves three years before Matty's tragic early passing at age forty-five, this highly collectible game boasts perhaps the largest and finest portrait of the Hall of Fame hurler produced during his life, dominating the lid of the 17x23x1" packaging. A dime-sized area of paper loss well clear of the central focus represents the sole visual distraction to the exterior, and that high-grade theme continues within. The playing surface is nearly pristine, and beneath it we find the exceedingly rare original insert sheet, meant to be cut up to create the various player pieces but untouched here. Two minor chips at the edges of the 14x22" page represent the entirety of condition concerns here. Almost certainly the finest example of this game in the hobby.
