1912 Hassan Triple Folder T202 - McGraw, Mathewson, Marquard

New York Giants CTNW Favorites #5

The next five posts will all be New York Giants. The Giants moved to the west coast in 1958 but the franchise has been in existence since 1883.  Under John McGraw, The Giants were a dynasty in the National League. They won 10 pennants and 3 World Series. From 1911 through 1913 the Giants had a 303-153 record. They won the pennant 3 years in a row only to lose the World Series. Hall of Fame pitchers, Christy Mathewson and Rube Marquard accounted for 147 of the 303 victories.

Although this card never existed, elements of it did exist. I patched the McGraw and Marquard portions with a photo of Mathewson to put 3 Giants Hall of Famers of that era onto one card.
