Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons XLV
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on 11/16/2012
Depending on your source guide, there are supposedly nine other reverses more scarce than the Carolina Brights issue; however, we prefer to gauge the market by what we see rather than what we read. And you just don’t see Carolina Brights cards that often. Throw in the fact that the card is of none other than Christy Mathewson and you’ve got a relic to write home about. A little discussed statistic as to Mathewson’s greatness – in only his third big league season, he won 30 games and led the league in strikeouts. He would duplicate the feat the following two seasons in a row, totaling 94 victories over the three year span.
