1913 Christy Mathewson Promotional Baseball Schedule

Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $528.75

This rare 1913 promotional baseball schedule, issued by the Durham Duplex Razor Co. of New Jersey, features a photo of Christy Mathewson in a pitching pose on the front cover. The back cover displays Mathewson’s written endorsement of the Durham Duplex razor. It is interesting to note that the home baseball schedules listed on the interior are for the Brooklyn Robins and New York Yankees, not Mathewson’s Giants. Mathewson was the formal celebrity endorser of this product and the fact that he was on the Giants was obviously secondary. Also featured in the interior, along with the game schedules, is a mail-in baseball puzzle that offers a grand prize of $50 to one lucky winner. This is a fascinating rarity, one that we have never seen before, and which would display beautifully (and be a standout visually) with a collection of Christy Mathewson baseball cards. The tri-fold schedule (2.5 x 4 inches, folded) is printed on thin paper stock and is in Excellent condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $300+. SOLD FOR $528.75
