Here's two National League T205's that are all about the action on the front.  Beals Becker is presented in a PSA 1 holder with a verdant and appealing green background, with some dings and abrasions present in the borders.  The reverse clearly shows this card resided in an album or scrapbook and was removed by less-than-diligent hands. Al Mattern, encased in a PSA 2 slab, is a bit less rough-hewn on both front and back.  The blue background on his card is a fine example of the color depth and large palette used in creating these images.  His reverse is miscut, with the right side just vanishing into the ether.  This is a nicely matched pair that celebrates the breadth of the lithographer's art.
