1909-1911 T206 White Border Christy Mathewson Dark Cap - El Principe de Gales Back!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $960

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson (dark cap) with a very desirable El Principe de Gales advertising reverse. El Principe De Gales is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than most other T206 advertising backs. The T206 Christy Mathewson dark cap pose is one of the most recognizable cards in all of card collecting. The offered example is extremely pleasing, with vibrant colors, a crisp image, and light wear to the four corners. Centered towards the bottom and entirely crease free. Perfectly clean both front and back. The important El Principe de Gales advertising reverse is boldly printed and centered slightly to the right. This is a very attractive scarce-back example of this classic Christy Mathewson tobacco card. SOLD FOR $960
