1909 E95 Philadelphia Caramel Christy Mathewson

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,528

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Extremely attractive high-grade example of Hall of Fame pitcher Christy Mathewson in a throwing pose from the very scarce E95 Philadelphia Caramel series. This 25-card set was issued in 1909 by the Philadelphia Caramel Co. of Camden, New Jersey. Mathewson, of course, is one of the key cards in the set. This is also one of Mathewson's most highly regarded cards from any set, and is considerably rarer than the popular T205 and T206 cards of Matty from the same era. This card is bright and clean, front and back, with a bold yellow background, a perfect surface with no creases, even wear to the corners, and is centered slightly to the bottom left. The reverse features a very boldly printed checklist for the set. It is interesting to note Mathewson’s name is misspelled “Matthewson” on this card. This is an extremely attractive, and for an "E" card, fairly high grade example of one of Mathewson’s most striking cards from one of the most popular and colorful of all “E” card issues. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,528
