Description

Graded 70 EX+ 5.5 by SGC. Few descriptors can adequately describe the grandeur of the offered 1911 T205 Gold Borders Christy Mathewson portrait. With a determined smirk, the incomparable "Big Six" peers into his Hall of Fame future on this century-old canvas. This classic cardboard is the highest grade "Matty" Polar Bear back at the grading tier with only one equal. The fragile gilt borders, which are susceptible to chipping, have endured the decades with little discernable wear. Properly centered with blazing surface hues and intricate facial detailing. The reverse, which confirms Mathewson's status as "idol of New York fans," displays inconsequential toning consistent with the brand. Truly, a tobacco centerpiece with an elite appearance difficult to match.
