2001 Upper Deck Legends "Legendary Cuts" #C-CM Christy Mathewson - Beautiful Full Name Signature!

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $15,600

Exceptional 2001 Upper Deck Legends "Legendary Cuts" card of New York Giants Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson featuring a beautiful full-name cut signature. The card is hand numbered "1/1." Mathewson cut signature cards are considered by many collectors to be among the most desirable of all signature cards ever issued by Upper Deck, which began the practice of randomly inserting signature and other chase cards into its products in the early 1990s and continues it to this day. The offered card features a stunning "Christopher Mathewson" cut signature (grading "10") and appears to have once been part of an official document as "Christopher Mathewson" is typewritten directly underneath the signature. As most collectors know, Mathewson's signature is very rare because of his untimely death at the age of forty-five in 1925. It should be noted these special signature cards were greatly limited in number and were normally issued randomly in packages of regular cards. However, because they are actual cards, they have always been highly prized by collectors, over and above the intrinsic value of the signatures themselves. This is an outstanding high-grade example of this incredibly rare and desirable modern cut-signature card of Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson. LOA from James Spence/JSA.  Reserve $2,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $15,600
