1911 Diamond Gum Pin Christy Mathewson PSA EX-MT 6
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,680
Presented is a very sharp, high-grade example of New York Giants Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson from the 1911 Diamond Gum pinback series. Diamond Gum pins have long been recognized as among the rarest and most desirable of all early baseball pinback sets. To the best of our knowledge, there has only been one complete set of all twenty-nine known Diamond Gum pins ever assembled! Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA, the pin is crisp and clean, and to our eye, it could have easily graded higher. The original back paper on the reverse is intact and advertises "Get A Collection of Ball Player's Buttons Free With Diamond Gum." A tremendous sample of this important Hall of Famer from one of early baseball-pinback collecting's most revered sets. Diameter: 7/8 inches. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,680
