1909-1911 T206 White Border Christy Mathewson Dark Cap - American Beauty Back! - Highest Graded

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,400

Graded EX 60 by SGC. One of only two examples graded at this level with none higher! Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson (dark cap) with a very desirable American Beauty 350 advertising reverse. American Beauty is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than most other T206 advertising backs. The T206 Christy Mathewson dark cap pose is one of the most recognizable cards in all of card collecting. The offered example is stunning, with extremely vibrant colors, a crisp image, and just a hint of light wear to the four corners. Outstanding centering and entirely crease free. Perfectly clean both front and back. The important American Beauty advertising reverse is boldly printed and centered slightly to the right. This is an extremely attractive and very rare scarce-back example of this classic Christy Mathewson tobacco card. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $2,400
