(LOT 6)
1913-15 W530 Pinkerton Christy Mathewson Postcard Blank Back SGC 4 VG EX – POP 1; Only 3 SGC Examples Graded Higher!

MATTY PINKERTON!!! The images depicted on the renowned 1911 T5 Pinkerton Cabinets were also utilized on postcards distributed from 1913-15 that included both Blank and Scorecard versos. One of the blank-backed scarcities is offered here, the iconic Christy Mathewson in an SGC 4 holder. The sole SGC blank-back example at this eye-pleasing plateau has only been bested by four specimens on the combined SGC/PSA Pop Charts! The majestic Matty is one of baseball's greatest all-time pitchers, with his astounding 373 victories (tied with Grover Alexander for the NL record), and four 30-win seasons justifying that notion. It was his unparalleled performance in the 1905 World Series that truly placed him on a pedestal when he tossed three complete shutout games, besting the mighty Athletics. Likewise, this POP 1 marvel portrays championship aesthetics as the hallowed Big Six reaches back to toss another one of his legendary fade-away pitches. Its superior resolution and lack of any glaring flaws more than offset the even corner wear and upper right corner wrinkle, truly residing as a perfect candidate for any esteemed Big Six collection!
