1909-1916 PC758 Max Stein Postcards Christy Mathewson - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,600

Graded VG/EX+ 55 by SGC (submitted by REA). This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Outstanding sample card of Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson (New York Giants) from the rare and highly regarded PC758 Max Stein Postcards set issued from 1909 to 1916. Baseball photographer Max Stein's classic photo-finish postcards are among the most revered of all early twentieth-century postcards. Mathewson is ideally depicted in a pitching pose. The image on the card is bright and crisp, with four strong corners showing light touches of wear. The card has never been mailed and has no writing on its traditional postcard reverse. Only six examples of Mathewson have ever been graded (at any level) by PSA and SGC. An ideal sample card featuring one of the game's most legendary stars, from one of the most unusual and substantial of all 1910-era baseball postcard issues. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $3,600
