Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. 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 offered example is all the more noteworthy as the reverse has an advertisement for Old Mill Cigarettes. Old Mill backs are unusual and very scarce, though not in the same league as the rarest of T206 backs (such as Lenox, Uzit, or Drum). This is a very attractive and strong card: it is bright and clean, with light, even wear to the corners, flawless registration, and centering to the bottom. A light stain in the lower left corner accounts for the conservatively assigned grade. The Old Mill reverse is perfectly clean and centered slightly to the bottom. A very striking example of one of Cy Young's most popular cards. One of the great things about card collecting is that some of the most famous and classic vintage cards of Hall of Famers, while not cheap, can be purchased without spending tens of thousands of dollars. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
