1898 Cameo Pepsin Gum Cy Young Pin

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,994

1898 Cameo Pepsin Gum pin of Hall of Fame pitcher Cy Young, featuring the legendary pitcher with the Cleveland Indians. Cameo Pepsin Gum is one of the very few sets featuring Cy Young issued prior to 1900. This is an outstanding example, with a sharp portrait image, absolutely flawless contrast, and with original Cameo Pepsin Gum back paper complete and intact on the reverse (the paper on the back has some extremely light spots of toning, mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy). Centered slightly towards the bottom right. All Cameo Pepsins are extremely rare. Cy Young is certainly one of the great highlights in the entire Pepsin Gum pin set, and, in our opinion, one of the great highlights among all rare baseball celluloids. Near Mint condition. Diameter: 1.25 inches. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $4,994
