Description

With his monumental success as a New York Giants twirler, offered is a 1910s 14x11 Metropolitan Badge and Novelty Company advertisement featuring Christy Mathewson. This New York City company advises the customer to purchase a peculiar "baseball fan badge". Presumably displayed in area storefronts, two hole-punches are found atop this advertising specimen. Despite corner tears, multiple creasing and tape residue, this multi-colored piece shines as "The Big Six" assumes his signature pitching wind-up. The reverse reveals an interesting diagram of some sort. A triumph for the "Matty" archivist.
