New York Giants Baseball Folk Art Figurine - Mathewson Likeness
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $420
Plaster folk art figurine of a New York Giants player that bears a tremendous likeness to Hall of Fame pitcher Christy Mathewson. The artist's name and the year it was created, "Curtis 80," are engraved in the base. This statue, in addition to its pleasing aesthetics, also has the added provenance of having once resided in the famed Barry Halper Collection. (It appeared as Lot 444 in the 1999 Halper Sale.) The brim of the cap is chipped (exactly as when sold at Sotheby's); otherwise the figurine remains in Excellent to Mint condition. 8 inches in height. Reserve $200. Estimate $300+. SOLD FOR $420
