Graded EX 5 by PSA. Extremely attractive T206 portrait of Cy Young set against a bold green background. This is one of Cy Young's most striking cards and one of the most popular cards in the entire T206 set. The colors are bright, and Young’s image is perfectly focused. The shade of green in the background allows for ideal contrast and gives this card particularly strong eye-appeal. Excellent centering with light and even wear to the corners (slightly more to the lower left upon close inspection). The Sweet Caporal reverse is clean. This is a magnificent 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+.
