1911-1914 D304 Butter Krust Bread Cy Young

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,400

Graded VG 3 by PSA. Crisp, clean, very attractive example of this classic bakery card of Hall of Famer Cy Young. This is one of Cy Young's most interesting and distinctive cards. Similar in design to tobacco and candy cards of the era, D304s measure slightly larger than T206s, at 1.75 x 2.5 inches, and are considerably rarer than most 1910 era “E” and “T” card issues. The fronts feature very attractive full-color illustrations, each of which is unique to this issue. Issued by a bakery in the Buffalo, New York, area, D304s are actually known with five different back styles (Brunner's, Butter Krust, General Baking Co., Weber Bakery, and Marten's Bakery). Bright and crisp, with bold colors, a flawless image, and four square corners. Young’s image contrasts sharply against the bright yellow and green background. Centered very slightly to the bottom, with a small surface wrinkle visible on each of the right and left edges. The reverse, which features advertising for Brunner's Butter Krust brand bread, is boldly printed and nearly perfectly centered. Slight toning is visible. This card certainly has a much stronger appearance at a glance than the assigned grade. This is a beautiful example of one of Cy Young's rarest and most noteworthy cards in an extremely desirable grade. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,400
