(LOT 37)
1910 E93 Standard Caramel Cy Young PSA 6 EX-MT

YOUNG CANDY TREAT!!!... The 1910 E93 Standard Caramel Candy cards including 30 subjects are considered one of the most popular candy issues in the hobby, and like most "E" cards, high grade examples are excruciatingly tough to find. One of the set's most desirable subjects is the immortal right-handed Hall of Fame twirler Cy Young, presented here in a brilliant PSA 6 holder. Its super scarce high grade is substantiated by PSA listing a meager six other examples at this desirable plateau with only three paltry specimens graded higher! The term "immortal" can certainly be applied to Hall of Famer Cy Young for it is his 511 lifetimes wins that truly resides as the foremost baseball record NEVER to be broken. Furthermore, considering that the annual award presented to each league's best pitcher carries his name, it's safe to say that he resides in a class by himself.

Likewise, this E93 representation of the great dead-ball era hurler also stands alone as the only Cy Young cardboard issue portraying Young in a unique swinging pose. Ultra-popular with vintage enthusiasts, Young's image is clearly outstanding, with his gray, blue and black hued uniform depicting near-perfect contrast and clarity. Set against a stunning yellow-gold background, the image slightly favors the right edge, with no glaring surface flaws compromising this museum worthy masterpiece. Somewhat square corners and a relatively clean verso complete this timeless marvel, with what appears to be some diminutive soiling near the lower right corner preventing a higher assessment. PSA 6 EX-MT Standard Caramel E93s are few and far between, and when they surface for one of our National pastime's greatest pitchers, like Cy Young, you have an unmistakable winner!
