Graded GOOD+ 2.5 by SGC (submitted by REA). Hall of Famer Cy Young in a batting pose from the very popular E93 Standard Caramel series. This card is part of an exciting, fresh-to-the-hobby collection consigned to this auction by the family of a Midwestern collector who built his impressive collection over a period of many decades, beginning as a young boy in the 1930s. This card features Cy Young at the tail end of his illustrious career. It is fascinating to note that while his team is listed as "Cleveland, Amer." on this card, Young is clearly pictured in a Boston Americans uniform (his jersey has the Boston Americans' "B A" logo across the chest). This 30-card set was issued in 1910 by the Standard Caramel Co. of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The card presents with bold colors and near-perfect centering as well as moderate wear to the four corners; it is modestly graded due to a heavy crease across the lower portion. The checklist reverse is perfectly clean. This is a very presentable example of one of Cy Young's most interesting and popular cards, and one of the key Hall of Famers from this rare, early twentieth-century candy issue. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
