T205 Christy Mathewson Tobacco Reprint Baseball Card

T205 Christy Mathewson Tobacco Reprint Baseball Card

Christy Mathewson, idol of New York fans and one of the greatest pitchers the game has ever known, has been one great factor in helping the Giants to the good standing. Absolutely subduing the Athletics in 1905 and mowing down the Yankees in 1910 (14 in one game), were only samples of his work. His splendid control is shown by the fact that in 4 years ending 1910 he only gave 191 bases on balls and hit eight batters (none in 1909), while striking out 770 men.

On the mound, Mathewson was a fierce competitor who became arguably the most dominating pitcher of all time. During his illustrious 17-year career, he led the league in wins four times, won five strikeout titles, won 30 or more games four times, pitched four shutouts and ten complete games in World Series competition, and won 373 games in his career.

In 1936, he joined Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb and Walter Johnson as the first class of baseball Hall of Famers.
