“Won in the Ninth,” a 1910 First Edition Hardcover Novel by Christy Mathewson.

Lot 360. “Won in the Ninth,” a 1910 First Edition Hardcover Novel by Christy Mathewson. The 298-page book plus appendix is promoted as “the first of a series of stories for boys on sports to be known as THE MATTY BOOKS.” The future Hall of Fame pitcher dedicated the book to Henry Chadwick, “The Father of Baseball,” for “his relentless opposition to everything that savored of dishonesty and commercialism in connection with” baseball. Mathewson was educated at Bucknell University, where he played baseball, basketball and football. One of baseball’s greatest pitchers, he was among the first five original members of the Baseball Hall of Fame. The book is vg to near fine with some scuffs on the paste-down image on the cover. Winning Bid $403.
