Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Crisp, clean, very attractive example of this classic bakery card of Hall of Famer Cy Young. This is one of Cy Young's most interesting and distinctive cards. Similar in design to tobacco and candy cards of the era, Brunners measure slightly larger than T206s, at 1.75 x 2.5 inches, and are considerably rarer than most 1910 era “E” and “T” card issues. The fronts feature very attractive full-color illustrations, each of which is unique to this issue. The offered example is very clean, both front and back, with four square corners, flawless registration, and outstanding centering. Young’s image contrasts sharply against the bright yellow and green background. A few faint surface indentations are visible upon close inspection (barely noticeable unless held at the right angle in extreme light), which is responsible for the modest grade assigned by PSA. This is a beautiful card in an extremely desirable condition (at first glance this card appears EX-MT), and shares almost all important elements in common with examples of a much higher technical grade. The back of the card features advertising for Brunners Butter Krust brand bread. This is a stunningly attractive technically mid-grade example of one of Cy Young's rarest and most noteworthy cards.
Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
