C Mathewson of the New York Nationals. (Christy Mathewson or Christopher Mathewson (1880-1925) also known as Big Six, Matty, and the Christian Gentleman. Color portrait of Christy Mathewson. An 'NY' is in the top left corner and 'Giants' is in the top right. The team is the New York Giants. Verso: Christopher Mathewson. Christy Mathewson, idol of New York fans, and one of the greatest pitchers that game has ever known, has been one great factor in helping the Giants to their 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 four years ending 1910 he only gave 191 bases on balls and hit eight batters (none in 1909) while striking out 770 men. Includes statistics for 1908-1910. Base Ball Series 400 Designs. Piedmont. The Cigarette of Quality. Factory No. 25, 2d Dist. VA.), 1911
