Graded NM 7 by PSA. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with just one graded higher! Extraordinary ultra high-grade example of Cleveland Naps Hall of Famer Cy Young (bare hand shows) from the T206 White Border series. Aside from its high grade, this card is notable for its Sovereign 350 advertising reverse. Sovereign is a scarce back, not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. The offered card is perfectly bright, crisp, and clean. It has a bold colors, near-flawless registration, four sharp corners, and centering slightly to the top. The important reverse is well centered and perfectly clean. This is a stunning example of this popular Hall of Famer from the classic T206 set with a particularly desirable advertising reverse. Reserve $2,000. Estimate (open).
