1909-1911 T206 Cy Young - Glove Shows - Cycle 460 Back

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,303.50

Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. Attractive example of Cy Young with an extremely desirable Cycle 460 advertising reverse, ranked by as the seventeenth toughest back (with some almost impossible backs like Ty Cobb, brown Old Mill, and Brown Lenox ahead of it). One of only seven examples with this back graded by SGC to date. Every player has his classic card and for Cy Young, to many, it is his T206 "glove shows" pose. It is one of the most recognizable of all vintage cards and one of the most popular cards in the entire T206 set. The offered example is extremely pleasing despite its technically low grade. Bright colors, crisp image, and even rounding to the corners. Light surface creasing is present but not distracting. Centered towards the bottom and clean both front and back. The important Cycle 460 advertising reverse is boldly printed and free of any paper loss. This is a very attractive scarce-back example of this classic Cy Young tobacco card. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,303.50
