    1910 E98 "Set of 30" Christy Mathewson (Green) SGC 84 NM 7 - The Finest Known Example In The Hobby! This card has always held a fascination with hobbyists for a number of reasons. First of all, it does feature one of the greatest ever - Christy Mathewson. The pose of his famous wind-up is now a Matty icon. The E98 series features almost twenty different HoFers among them Cobb, Mack. Bender, Chance, Young, Tinker, Jennings and Wagner but Matty stands out for its scarcity compared to the others. One just doesn't see it as often.

    He must have had a fan who was a typographer as his name is the only one in the set presented in full. Even "Honus" was abbreviated to "Hans." Use of a condensed font was necessary and is found on no other card. Over a century later, of the hundreds of cards that comprise the Black Swamp find, Mathewson makes just one appearance. His appearance is a key entry in any series and the E98 promotion is no different. This is simply one of his most admired cards featuring the "Big Six."

    Graded SGC 84 NM 7. This is the only E98 Mathewson graded NM with none rated higher! This status stays true looking at the PSA census! It is a shockingly nice card with every "Black Swamp" attributes with a lush Green background. A rare opportunity to acquire the finest example of a Christy Mathewson card that makes one wonder, if there was one Matty card in the find... were there others?
