Offered here is an amazing high-grade example of legendary Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson from the 1912 S81 Large Silk tobacco-premium issue.

The S81 silks could only be received via mail, in exchange for twenty Helmar Tobacco gift coupons per silk. The redeemable coupons were inserted one coupon per pack, so it is not surprising that these premiums are extremely rare. Mathewson is one of the key Hall of Famers in the set, which includes just twenty-five subjects. This gorgeous example has a flawless image area with incredibly vibrant coloring, immaculate registration, and almost perfect centering. Some fraying at the top and bottom is present, as is commonplace for silks that are over a century old.

This is a most extraordinary and simply magnificent example of Christy Mathewson, one of the finest in existence, from one of the rarest and most classic of all 1910-era tobacco-premium issues. Graded NM 7 by SGC.

1912 S81 SILKS #108 CHRISTY MATHEWSON - SGC NM 7 (POP 1, ONLY THREE HIGHER)
