Graded 30 Good 2 by SGC and one of only two judged by the third-party authenticator. This circa 1912 Underwood and Underwood #730 Christy Mathewson postcard is a sterling portrayal of “The Christian Gentleman” in a ballpark setting. The strong and virtually unknown rendering measures approximately 3-1/2 x 5-1/2” and is entirely absent of creasing or surface crazing to the glossy gelatin surface. With deference to finger impressions due to original handling, the keepsake is otherwise absent of significant wear. A small pencil notation of 10-22-12 is discernable on the correspondence section. Interestingly, Mathewson’s New York Giants and the Boston Red Sox culminated an eight game World Series just a week prior to that marking. To our knowledge, no other specimens of this postcard have been made available for public sale.
