T206 Christy Mattewson (White Cap) Proof sold for $16,800

Mastro Auctions (April 30, 2008)

Mastro Auctions sold a T206 Christy Mattewson (White Cap) SGC-Authenticated Proof for $16,800 in April 2008 auction.

The following was the auction description:

Encapsulated and assessed "Authentic" by SGC. This is a splendid and boundlessly rare T206 proof card of Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson. Outside of a significant find of proof cards discovered at the American Sports Card Collectors Association Show in 1973, very few T206 artifacts of this kind have surfaced. All of those cards have been absorbed into collections, and examples are very seldom made available. The offered example is the very important and may well be the most significant card from that historical find. As is typical with proof cards, this "Mathewson, White Cap" specimen is hand-cut and carries printed proofing marks in the margins. It displays a blank back and is missing the name and caption. An interesting bonus is noted in the fact that the proof card differs from the production version: two tiny lines on the cap, added to the "finished" card, are absent on this crystal-clear proof piece's rendering. This outstanding pre-production relic projects apparent Excellent to Mint or finer display quality with irregular borders as noted, as well as bright, clean surfaces on both sides. Ex-Copeland Collection.

Final Bid with Buyer's Premium: $16,800
