Default 1914 Mathewson in Memory Lane

A 1914 Cracker Jack Christy Mathewson just sold for $37.4K last night in Memory Lane's auction. It was a PSA 1. And it was even missing the top left corner! Does anyone have an explanation? I know.... two rich guys who both decided that they couldn't wait for another one to come up for sale. Does anyone have a better answer?

Or is this the new going rate for 1914 Mattys. Let's find out: here is my card, also a PSA 1 and also missing the same corner. Anyone want to offer me $37,000 for it? I'll even throw in the extra caramel stains at no extra charge. Anyone....?

Itís comical when 2 people decide they have to have something. Yikes. Thatís a chunk of change. Does anyone have an idea how many of those exist?

Default Cj matty

There were a lot of new price levels throughout that set in last nights auction. Indeed the Matty price stands head and shoulders above the rest. However, itís widely considered one of the top five or ten cards in the entire hobby and they just donít seem to come up very often.

I believe the total graded population is around 45 and Lord knows that probably includes many resubmissions so who knows what the real pop is- but itís extremley low for such a massive card.

Congrats to the seller - and the also to the buyer who just got one amazing card.

Being in the hobby quite a bit I am congratulating the seller. As for the buyer, just don't watch any auctions the next couple years and all will be fine. It's a fairly scarce card.

Unreal card Jeff.

Seems that Heritage's next auction will have a 1914 CJ Matty. There is no picture on the site yet, but I say we take bets on the over/under.... Right now, sight unseen, I have the over/under at $20,500.
