Large 1916 pitching action photograph of new player/manager Christy Mathewson of the Cincinnati Reds. Head to toe action shows Matty starting to look a bit aged but still in top form on the diamond. Despite some creasing and wear, the photo presents well. There is a secretarial autograph that has been removed/faded on the lower right but it is hard to see and the image represents an excellent period Mathewson image from a rare period in his career.
