Description

The provenance for this beauty is that it originated from the "Lifetime Private Book and Ephemera Collection of Sherman Emery and Harold Merry," handled by Maine-based Hap Moore Antiques Auctions in September 2016. Christy Mathewson's signature was included among those of numerous silent-movie-era actors and actresses amassed by a Ms. Helen Sturdy from the 1900s to 1920s—during which time Mathewson appeared in a variety of short features. (Color photocopies of the pertinent Hap Moore info sheet and the similar actor/actress cut signatures are included.) Matty's elegantly scripted signature was clearly done with great care, not haste. The white piece of card stock measures 3-1/2 x 2-5/8" and rates EX. Full photo LOA from JSA and encapsulated by PSA/DNA with an autograph grade of NM-MT 8.
