    1916 Christy Mathewson Day Original Underwood & Underwood News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. By the time this image of John McGraw, Buck Herzog, and Christy Mathewson was captured in July of 1916 "Big Six" - then a player-manager for the Cincinnati Reds - had merely a single game left in his playing career.

    Having been traded from the Big Apple to the Queen City just a week prior (in exchange for Herzog, coincidentally), the second game of the series at the Polo Grounds was dubbed 'Christy Mathewson Day' with the fans of the black-and-orange getting one last chance to celebrate their former ace.

    The 7.5x9" photograph exhibits moderate wear throughout with a pair of missing corners and some creasing. Editorial markings have been added to the front to enhance the image for print while the reverse features a pair of "Central Press Association" stamps, an "Underwood & Underwood" stamp, and its original paper caption. Full LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
