1915 E145 Cracker Jack #88 Christy Mathewson

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,998

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Stunning mid-grade example of Christy Mathewson from the 1915 Cracker Jack series. This E145 Mathewson card has been separated from the original-owner near-set of 1915 Cracker Jacks offered in this auction. This is a tremendous Vg-Ex condition card with much stronger eye-appeal than suggested by its technically accurate SGC grade. This has always been one of Mathewson’s most striking and popular cards. 1915 Cracker Jacks will always be one of the most highly prized and widely collected of all prewar sets. Mathewson is one of the key cards in the set, along with Cobb, Jackson, Johnson, and Wagner. The offered card is outstanding in all respects. Bright, crisp, and perfectly fresh, with flawless color, perfect registration, and even wear to the corners. Beautifully centered (slightly to the left). The reverse has an extremely light stain near the upper right corner, and is otherwise perfectly crisp and clean. This is an extraordinary mid-grade 1915 Cracker Jack example of Christy Mathewson, one of baseball's greatest legends, from one of collecting's most classic and popular sets. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $1,998
