An Elite Eight! Graded 8 NM-MT by SGC. A standard of collecting excellence is available with the offered 1909 T206 White Borders Christy Mathewson "White Cap" pose crowned by a sparkling clean Sweet Caporal 150 Subjects advertising back. This 113 year-old wonder has survived the century in incredible condition by exhibiting four sharp corners, fresh white edges and gleaming color sequences. The front surface registration is flawless and the tougher pose illustration of the "Christian Gentleman" appears to "pop" from the blue-and-green background setting. A turn-of-the-century masterwork which survives as the highest graded of the player/pose/brand combination judged by SGC. In fact, of the 2,260 total Mathewson cards of all poses and brands (as of writing) judged by the service, the offered relic survives as 1 of 5 to have achieved 8 NM-MT status (top 99.7%) with only one better. Set your pre-war collection apart with this brilliant "Matty!"
