    Description

    1916 John McGraw & Christy Mathewson News Photograph. Two Big Apple legends meet for the first time as warring generals. The caption on verso tells the story: "They are now both managers, one an old hand at the tiller and a winner of many pennants, the other just breaking in as a pilot of the Cincinnati Reds." Though the stamped date on verso is Aug 28, 1916, the mention of a recent "Matty Day" would suggest the photo was actually snapped a month earlier, just after the historic trade that sent the Hall of Fame pitcher to the Reds where he would be installed as the team's skipper, fulfilling a longstanding ambition. This fine original Type 1 shot is trimmed of its side borders to final dimensions of 6x8", but is otherwise free of any condition issues.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
