Graded VG+ 45 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 even, natural rounding of the corners. The Sweet Caporal reverse has bold red print against an off-white background. A very appealing mid-grade example of one of Cy Young’s most striking cards from the premier tobacco-card set of the era. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
