Description

Depicted near the height of a spectacular career, the offered 1910 American Caramel E125 die-cut Christy Mathewson, is a "Big Six" piece beyond compare. The lengthy 6" format for "Matty" was unparalleled by any manufacturers of the day. Originating from the P.R. Warren Co. of Lowell, Massachusetts, Mathewson shines as the key figure in the midst of other greats released in this difficult series. Despite the low technical condition, this extraordinary exemplar exhibits exquisite detail and vibrant coloring. Removed are the tabs which accompany the issue, along with minor writing on the reverse. Additionally, multiple creases run through the frame which does little to denigrate the splendor of this centerpiece. The Bucknell graduate appears at the ready with his signature "wind-up" in this action card. Rarely does an opportunity arise to secure such a scarce specimen.
