Lot # 208 (of 1389)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Border Cy Young Glove Shows SGC NM+ 86 - Tolstoi Back! - 1 of 1 - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $6,000

Graded NM+ 86 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level by SGC with none higher! 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. This is a particularly outstanding card on many counts. In addition to being in exceptionally high grade, the offered example is all the more noteworthy as the reverse has an advertisement for Tolstoi Cigarettes. Tolstoi backs are unusual and very scarce, though not in the same league as the rarest of T206 backs (such as Lenox, Uzit, or Drum). The card is bright and clean, both front and back, with four sharp corners (displaying just the tiniest hints of wear), near-flawless registration, perfect colors, and near-perfect centering. Clean front and back. The important advertisement is crisp and clean. The offered card is the highest-graded Tolstoi example listed on the PSA and SGC population reports (the next highest-graded card grades EX-MT). Extremely attractive and striking scarce-back example of this classic Cy Young card worthy of the finest T206, Cy Young, or Hall of Fame card collection. SOLD FOR $6,000
