1909-1911 T206 White Border Christy Mathewson Dark Cap SGC EX+ 70

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $1,560

Graded EX+ 70 by SGC (submitted by REA). Exceptional example of one of the three classic poses of Christy Mathewson from the T206 White Border series. The T206 Christy Mathewson dark cap pose is one of the most recognizable cards in all of card collecting. The offered card is one of the highlights of a completely untouched collection of tobacco cards consigned to this auction. This example has a particularly bold image which really "jumps" from the card, near-perfect centering, and vibrant colors. This is very sharp-looking card, extremely clean both front and back, with four square corners displaying only very light natural wear (slightly more in the upper right). This is a beautiful card! With patience, outstanding examples of card collecting's great vintage classics can sometimes be found in a grade that does not require many thousands of dollars. This is such a case. This is a stunning EX+ example of one of the key cards from the classic T206 set.  Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,560
