1909-1911 T206 White Border Cy Young SGC-Graded Collection - All 3 Poses!

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $1,800

Presented are all three classic poses of Cy Young from the T206 White Borders series, each very attractive but technically modest in grade. All three cards are graded and encapsulated by SGC (submitted by REA). 1) The bare-hand pose grades VG 40. Strong image, near-perfect centering, bold colors, and light, even wear to the corners, including a small crease in the upper right. Sweet Caporal reverse, with light areas of excess print around the 150 subjects line. 2) The glove-shows pose grades FAIR 20. Crisp image, vibrant colors, centered slightly to the right, and even rounding to the four corners. Presents as VG, but downgraded due to two areas of paper loss and glue residue on the Piedmont 350-460 reverse. 3) The portrait pose grades GOOD+ 35. Flawless image, tremendous colors, and outstanding centering. Presenting as VG-EX+ at first glance, the card has been downgraded due to a light horizontal crease through the center of the card, which is only visible under close inspection and does not break through to the back. Piedmont 150 reverse with a small stain near the bottom edge. This is a very attractive yet relatively affordable trio of classic original Cy Young tobacco cards, representing a potentially outstanding vintage-card value. Total: 3 cards.

The items in this lot are part of the deaccessioned property of a prominent northeast museum which has selected Robert Edward Auctions to handle the sale of donated sportscards and memorabilia in an effort to fund purchases more in line with the mission and goals of the museum.
