1909-1911 T206 White Border Cy Young "Broad Leaf 460" Back - SGC EX+70
Starting Bid - $5,000, Sold For - $29,375
Graded EX+ 70 by SGC. Incredible high-grade T206 glove-shows pose of Hall of Fame pitcher Cy Young with the extremely rare Broad Leaf Cigarettes (460 Series) advertisement on the back. This is easily one of the most extraordinary of all T206 front and rare advertising back combinations in existence. Broad Leaf (460 Series) backs are striking, unusual, and extremely rare. Even a sample of a common player is one of the most difficult-to-find of all T206 advertising backs. Examples featuring a key Hall of Famer such as Cy Young are virtually impossible in any condition. An example of Cy Young, one of the premier Hall of Famers in the T206 set, with a Broad Leaf 460 back, and in extraordinary high grade, no less, is a tobacco-card collecting miracle! This is an astounding card. It is also the first Broad Leaf 460 Cy Young that we have ever seen, let alone had the privilege of offering. This is a gorgeous card in all respects. The card has very strong eye-appeal, perfectly clean both front and back, with no creases, extremely bold color, and only the slightest light hint of wear to the corners. Centered 35/65 left to right. The Broad Leaf print on the reverse is flawless and particularly bold. This is an exceptional ultra high-grade example of one of the rarest and most desirable T206 Hall of Famer front and rare advertising back combinations in existence. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000+. SOLD FOR $29,375
