1915 E145 Cracker Jack #88 Christy Mathewson - SGC NM+ 86

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,406

Graded NM+ 86 by SGC. One of only two examples graded at this level by SGC. Exceptionally stunning high-grade example of Christy Mathewson from the 1915 Cracker Jack series. This has always been one of Mathewson’s most striking and popular cards. 1915 Cracker Jacks will always be one of the most highly prized and widely collected of all prewar sets. Mathewson is one of the key cards in the set, along with Cobb, Jackson, Johnson, and Wagner. This is an incredibly high grade example with sharp corners, flawless color, centered to the left (the approximately 35/65 L/R centering is the only factor responsible for this card not grading even higher, at least NM-MT), perfectly bright and clean, and with no caramel staining. This card was obviously once from an original "factory set" obtained by mail directly from the company. This is an extraordinary high-grade 1915 Cracker Jack example of Christy Mathewson, one of baseball's greatest legends, from one of collecting's most classic and popular sets. The SMR value for a PSA NM 7 is $6,500. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000+. SOLD FOR $4,406
