Guys,

It's got to be T206-Christy Mathewson, white and dark cap. Cards capture the flower of youth, your the toast of New York, what more could you ask for.

Agreed... Or the larger T3 version. They used the same pose for 'The Celebrant' cover.

you had to pull out that blue bordered matty?!?

When I casually thought about picking that up... little did I know I had such a short window of opportunity to make that decision. You swooped right in. Awesome card!


(ummm... astoria giants is staying put )


A recent pickup of mine - is another cool Giant card...

1906 -

Dylan, Those are awesome Boston Garter Mathewson cards. Did you buy them in auctions or through private sales?

Sorry my post was off topic. I just realized the real meaning of the thread. You didn't mean card size. You meant team. DUH...

This is my favorite Matty that I own. That Mathewson sepia Boston Garter is easily my favorite Matty card.

Hey Joe, you shouldn't have said anything because I thought you were being sarcastic.

Has anyone ever noticed the Boston Garter Mathewson how funny the picture is?

Here’s Matty chilling in his underwear while in the window behind him it looks like a player just used a bat to end a dispute cracking the other player upside the head.

And what is even more surprising about the card....doesn't it appear to anyone else that it is Eddie Plank getting slapped upside the head by the bat? Hmm.

But Eddie's a lefty. Maybe it's Jeff Tesreau.

Ok i am finally going to ask. I dont care how rare they are i have never seen a Boston Garter card that id even think of owning. Who would you show that to and how would you explain it to someone else? If someone doesnt collect cards then to them you just have a picture of a guy in his underwear and youve paid alot for it and youre proud of it.



Edited for spelling and to add my favorite pre-war Giants card is the Ewing/Mascot card.I dont show my cards to anyone so i dont care if there's a little kid on them

John, you're right.

Not to mention the fact that in the window behind Matty, it looks like one guy just hammered another guy in the face with a baseball bat.

Very odd card.

Guys,

The 1912 Boston Garter Mathewson is a great card except for the minor detail that it doesn't look very much like Matty.

There two of my favorites but I dont own them! The 1914 Garter sold for 30,000. And the other color Garter is 1 of only 2 known. I'd imagine it would sell for a bundle, i dont remember what it sold for in its last known transaction.
