Perhaps the most iconic image of "The Christian Gentleman," Hall of Fame pitcher Christy Mathewson.  One of the most popular pitchers of the deadball era and certainly one of the best-loved ball players of all-time, the classic image of Matty in the stretch position has been seen on baseball cards, notebook covers, book covers, paintings, and many other applications where Matty's likeness was used in the past and even today.  When many people think of Christy Mathewson it is this very image that they see in their mind's eye.  Here is an opportunity to own the iconic card that utilizes that classic image.  Wonderful color and image clarity, the card has received a grade of VG-EX 4 from PSA due largely to light soiling on the reverse, along with very slight discoloration around the borders.  Corner and edge wear is minimal for the grade.  One of the three or four key cards in the immensely popular and widely collected Turkey Red cabinet set, this is a highly desirable card sought after by collectors of all types.  One of the most lasting images of deadball era baseball, a T3 Turkey Red Christy Mathewson is one of the most famous prewar baseball cards.
