1916 Beautiful photograph of Hall of Famers Christy Mathewson and John McGraw of the New York Giants, posing at the ballpark in full uniform. The duo was not only two of the best known ballplayers of their era, but they were close friends. Issued by the Central Press with their earliest stamp (c. 1917) the photo was taken in 1916 so this fits well within our range and also for a PSA "Type 1" as well. It was filed in a newspaper in 1917 or 1919 (it is hard to determine the final number) but this is only a filing date and not when it was necessarily produced. One of the finest images of Mathewson and McGraw together, this is being offered here for the first time ever fresh out of a newspaper archive.
