Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Extremely attractive example of Hall of Famer Cy Young (bare hand shows) from the T206 set with a very desirable El Principe De Gales advertising reverse. El Principe De Gales is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than most other T206 advertising backs. Crisp and clean, both front and back, with bold colors, light wear to the corners, and centering slightly toward the bottom. An extremely light stain is visible at the upper left portion of the card and mentioned for the sake of accuracy. The reverse is entirely clean. The bottom portion of the “Young, Cleveland” nameplate is visible on the top border, a very popular anomaly with many T206 collectors. Extremely desirable example of Hall of Famer Cy Young (bare hand shows) with El Principe De Gales back. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
