Lot # 599 (of 1673)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 Cy Young - Portrait - BVG EX 5

Starting Bid - $400.00 , Sold For - $1,527.50

Graded EX 5 by BVG. A very attractive T206 portrait of Cy Young set against a dark green background. This is one of Cy Young's most striking cards and one of the most popular cards in the entire T206 set. The colors are bright and Young’s image is perfectly focused. The deep, rich green background gives this card particularly strong eye appeal. The centering is virtually perfect and all four corners are square with a touch of wear. We have little doubt that if it had just slightly less wear to the lower right corner that this card would have been graded EX-MT by BVG. The reverse has bold red print against an off-white background. A very attractive high-grade example of one of Cy Young’s most striking cards from the premier tobacco-card set of the era. The equivalent SMR value is $1,300. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,527.50
