Lot # 168 (of 1336)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Border Christy Mathewson Dark Cap - Cycle 460 Back - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,680

Graded VG+ 45 by SGC. Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson (dark cap) with a very desirable Cycle 460 advertising reverse, ranked by as the seventeenth toughest back (with some almost impossible backs like Ty Cobb, Brown Old Mill, and Brown Lenox ahead of it). This is one of only two examples of Mathewson (dark cap) graded by SGC at any level with a Cycle 460 reverse! 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 strong colors and even wear to the corners. Centered towards the bottom, with a small vertical crease at the top edge. Perfectly clean both front and back. The important Cycle 460 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.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,680
