About Christy Mathewson
As charismatic and popular as any player in the early 1900s, the college-educated Christy Mathewson won 373 games over 17 seasons, primarily for the New York Giants. Using his famous fadeaway pitch, Matty won at least 22 games for 12 straight years beginning in 1903, winning 30 games or more four times. A participant in four World Series, Mathewson's lone title came in 1905 when he tossed three shutouts in six days against the Athletics. He set the modern National League mark with 37 wins in 1908.

Coin Designs
The obverse (heads side) design of the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame 50C depicts a glove that, combined with the baseball design featured on the reverse, exemplifies the most basic elements of our national pastime or a simple game of catch in the backyard or at the local sandlot. Inscriptions are: "LIBERTY", "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2014".
The reverse (tails) design features a baseball similar to those used by Major League Baseball. Inscriptions are "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA", "HALF DOLLAR" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM".
