    1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal 350 Christy Mathewson (Dark Cap) PSA NM-MT 8 - Pop Two, One Higher For Brand/Series Combo. Offered is a highly prized card of one of the inaugural five inductees into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Matty, was a handsome matinee idol (really, he acted in Vaudeville), the author of the book "Pitching in a Pinch," and the college educated gentleman who was a supreme competitor. Matty was not enamored with defeat. As he noted, "Travelling with a tail-end ball club is the poorest pastime in the world. I would rather ride in the first coach of a funeral procession." Known as 'The Big Six", for a famed two-story tall powerful fire engine in New York City, Mathewson used that power to set modern National League records for wins in a season (37), career wins (373) and consecutive seasons winning 20 games (12). Mathewson pitched 17 seasons, all with the New York Giants except a single game at the end of his career with Cincinnati.

    The T206, known as "The Monster," is the most iconic baseball card set of all-time. It is an immense set, with 524 different cards, some even depicting minor league players. It features colorful lithographs, and its borders give it the nickname as the "White Borders" set. This card version differs from another Mathewson T206 card by the nature of his "Dark Cap" and how fantastic the colors, surfaces, edges and corners have survived seemingly barely untouched. Here is a chance to get a classic Christy Mathewson T206 card in a virtually unique condition. Graded PSA NM-MT 8. Out of a total population of over 1,500, there are fewer than 125 confirmed with this brand/series combination. This is one of two graded NM-MT with one higher.
