Graded EX 60 by SGC. Extremely high-grade example featuring a striking portrait of Hall of Famer Cy Young from the E90-1 American Caramel series. This would be a gem in terms of condition for any vintage card, but for a caramel card, the SGC EX 60 grade is all the more impressive. This is easily one of the most popular and classic of all cards of the legendary Cy Young. This is also one of the most striking cards in the E90-1 American Caramel set. Bright and clean, both front and back, with a bold red background, centered ever-so-slightly to the right, with just a hint of light even wear to the corners, and with perfect registration. The back is flawless with bold black print. This is a beautiful card that appears to be stronger than its assigned grade. E90-1s occasionally have print lines, as is the case with the offered example, which we and most collectors find to be very desirable. This is a particularly exceptional and conservatively graded example of one of the most classic Cy Young cards from the most popular caramel-card set of the era. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+.
