1909 E92 Croft's Candy Cy Young PSA NM 7

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $5,510.00

Graded NM 7 by PSA. Highest graded example with only two others graded in lesser condition. Rare caramel issue from 1909, Croft's Candy shares a similar design with several other related candy issues (Dockman Gum, Nadja Caramels, etc.) from the same era. The offered sample card of Hall of Fame pitcher Cy Young has virtually perfect centering, four square corners, and a brilliant image set against a bright orange background. The back has a light caramel stain in the lower left corner which is very likely responsible for keeping this card from receiving a higher grade. Caramel cards, of course, are rarely found in high grade. Strong Nr/Mt example of the legendary Cy Young from this rare, early twentieth-century candy issue. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $5,510.00
