Graded EX 60 by SGC. 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. Bright colors and a perfectly focused image. The deep, rich green background gives this card particularly strong eye-appeal. Outstanding centering, with light, even wear to the corners. The Piedmont reverse has bold blue print against an off-white background. Very minor soiling on the reverse is visible along the borders. A very appealing example of one of Cy Young’s most striking cards from the premier tobacco-card set of the era. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
