Grede VG/EX 50 by SGC. Every player has his classic card and for Cy Young, to many, it is his T206 glove shows pose. It is one of the most recognizable of all vintage cards and one of the most popular cards in the entire T206 set. The card presents with a crisp image, near-perfect registration, centering slightly to the top, and light, even corner wear. Boldly printed and clean Polar Bear advertisement on the reverse. Light tobacco staining (a natural occurrence with Polar Bear backs) and an erased pencil mark on the reverse account for the assigned grade. This is an extremely desirable grade for this classic card, and this particular example is additionally noteworthy for its popular advertising back. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
