Quality / Condition
Christy Mathewson was as charismatic and popular as any player in the early 1900’s. In a time when ballplayers were known as hard living, hard drinking rogues, there was “Matty”. The handsome college-educated star was the idol of millions, the role model every parent wanted their children to emulate. His articulate dignified persona contrasted a fierce competitiveness on the mound that made him arguably the most dominant pitcher of his time. Offered is a rare signed first edition hardcover copy of his book “Pitching in a Pinch”: G.P. Putnam’s Sons, New York: 1912.
