Mathewson's prominent 4x7 portrait image is credited to American Press Association, and the text begins, "Baseball enthusiasts everywhere call him ‘Matty,’ but he is really Christopher Mathewson, and it is by that name he is known in the insurance business, at which he works when he is not playing ball.” The daily paper of Red Wing, Minn., consists of four double-sided pages measuring 14-1/2 x 21-1/2". They were evidently removed from a bound album, resulting in expected wear along the left edge; otherwise, unusually clean EX-MT condition.
