1911 M110 Sporting Life Cabinet Christy Mathewson
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,555
Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. Presented is Hall of Fame pitcher Christy Mathewson, one of the key cards from the extremely rare M110 Sporting Life cabinet set issued in 1911. Each card in the M110 set features beautiful full-color pastel artwork on the front and advertising for Sporting Life on the reverse. M110s are similar in design to, but far rarer than, the contemporary T3 Turkey Red cabinets. This one of the rarest and most beautiful of all Christy Mathewson cards. Technically graded GOOD by PSA due to staining in the borders (not affecting the central image), this example presents extremely well with only light hints of wear to the delicate corners and some chipping to the stock along the bottom edge. A small crease in the upper right corner and a tiny tear along the right edge are the only other notable flaws. The back of the card features a boldly printed advertisement for Sporting Life. This is an extremely attractive example of one of the most striking and rarest of all Christy Mathewson cards. Dimensions: 5-5/8 x 7-1/2 inches. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,555
