1912 T202 Hassan Triple Folder Christy Mathewson PSA EX 5 Collection (4)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,160
Presented are four of the eight Christy Mathewson cards from the classic 1912 T202 Hassan Triple Folder series, each graded and encapsulated by PSA. Three cards grade EX 5 and one card grades NM-MT 8 (OC). The cards are identified according to the numbers provided by the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards checklist. 1) #45 "Devlin Gets His Man" Mathewson/Devlin (Rustlers). PSA EX 5. Bright and crisp, with light, even wear to the corners (slightly more in the lower right), bold colors, and outstanding centering. 2) #46 "Devlin Gets His Man" Mathewson/Fletcher. PSA NM-MT 8 (OC). Striking colors, four sharp corners, clean front and back, and centered towards the bottom, which accounts for the qualifier. 3) #47 "Devlin Gets His Man" Mathewson/Meyers. PSA EX 5. Bright colors, even wear to the corners, and centered slightly to the bottom. 4) #85 "Just Before the Battle" Mathewson/Meyers. PSA EX 5. Crisp, clean, and very attractive, with four sharp corners, flawless registration, and excellent centering. Presents as Ex-Mt or better, but downgraded due to a few extremely light wrinkles in the upper left corner of the reverse. This is an extremely attractive collection of classic Christy Mathewson tobacco cards, representing one-half of the Mathewson cards in the T202 set, all in very desirable grades. T202 Hassan Triple Folders featuring Mathewson are great classics of the era. They also (in our opinion) happen to represent a particularly outstanding collecting value compared to other Mathewson tobacco cards, and perhaps any other 1910-era set featuring Mathewson. Total: 4 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $2,160
