Description

The reverse on the offered 1911 T205 Gold Border Christy Mathewson card refers to the mound artisan as the "idol of New York fans, and one of the greatest pitchers the game has ever known." Few pre-war cards capture "Matty" more precisely than this PSA 3 graded card with a difficult Cycle back. The piercing expression of Mathewson's glare graces this crease-free exemplar. Degraded only by the typical chipped edges and rounded corners associated with the series, the scarce reverse reveals minimal paper pulling along with an age-toned back. A premier specimen of this all-time great appearing at the tip-top of the technical grade.
