1912 T202 Triple Folder "Devlin Gets His Man" Mathewson/Devlin (Rustlers)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,292.50
Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. One of only two examples at this level, with just five graded higher. Extremely high-grade example of this key Hall of Famer and rarity from the classic T202 Hassan Triple Folders set: #45 "Devlin Gets His Man" featuring Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson and Arthur Devlin (Rustlers) on the end panels. This is one of the rarest cards in the T202 set. Only twenty examples of this card have ever been graded by PSA, making this one of the lowest population cards in the entire PSA Population Report for Hassan Triple Folders. The offered example is in in exceptionally high grade for this condition-sensitive issue. Bright and crisp, both front and back, with snow-white borders, rich colors, flawless registration, and four sharp corners. The very slightly irregular natural cut along the top and bottom and the hint of printing roller marks, both characteristic of T202s, are almost certainly responsible for this card not receiving an even higher grade from PSA. This is a magnificent example, which would be very much at home in the finest T202 set or collection, or would be a highlight for any serious Christy Mathewson or prewar Hall of Fame card collection. The SMR value for this important card is only $815. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,292.50
