One of the best-known images of the T206 issue, and one of his most highly desirable cards, the "dark cap" T206 of Christy Mathewson is one of the more beautiful cards in the set.  With bold background colors of bright blue and green, "Big Six" stands in the set position, in a classic pose used again and again in baseball cards and other Matty-related images.  A hobby icon, Christy Mathewson is one of the most popular players ever to take the field, nearly 90 years after his passing.

This example, graded EX 60 by SGC, is a beautiful one, with a glowing image and square corners consistent with the grade.  Slight L-R centering problem does not diminish the overall eye appeal of the card, nor does the appearance of very slight staining on the reverse.  A beautiful image of one of the most important players in the history of the game.

Population Data
SGC Population: 73 total graded, 3 at this level, 4 higher
PSA Population: 194 total graded, 19 at this level, 15 higher*

*Please note that PSA just recently began to differentiate between T206 back variations in their population reports, so it is entirely possible that other examples of this card may have been graded by PSA and classified in their pop reports as "unknown back."
