Circa 1912 Underwood & Underwood Postcard #730 Christy Mathewson - Highest Graded!
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,500
Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Highest-graded example! Superb and extremely rare circa 1912 Underwood & Underwood Postcard of New York Giants Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson. The real-photo postcard captures the legendary pitcher in an almost full-length pose holding a baseball. The photographer's credit "Underwood & Underwood. N.Y." appears underneath. This is one of a series of postcards produced using photos taken by this noted studio. The postcard (3.5 x 5.5 inches) has not been mailed and presents with a crisp, clear photograph, outstanding centering, and light wear to the corners (slightly more in the upper right). The reverse is entirely clean. This is a stunning postcard, the first example of its kind that we can recall offering, worthy of any advanced postcard, Christy Mathewson, or prewar-card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $4,500
