    Early 1910's Christy Mathewson Original Large Photograph Inscribed by His Mother, PSA/DNA Type I. Magnificent sepia photographic portrait captures Big Six at the height of his Hall of Fame abilities, outfitted in the uniform of the New York Giants team he led four times to the National League Championship. A small area of loss at lower left, just beside a black fountain pen inscription reading, "Presented by Christy's Mother" represents the largest condition concern; two hairline tears at top and right are not particularly distracting. Size is 10x13", absolutely massive for the period. Penciled editorial notation on verso suggests the image was reprinted in a newspaper at some point. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type I.
