(LOT 269)
1911 T3 Turkey Red Cabinets #42 Cy Young Checklist Back PSA 6 EX-MT – Only One PSA Example Graded Higher!

CY HIGH-GRADE T3!!! Immortal Hall of Famer Denton True "Cy" Young is the author of baseball's unbreakable record of 511 lifetime victories, with his unparalleled stature leading to the annual award for pitching excellence forever carrying his hallowed name. Tantamount to the Cy Young Award's pinnacle standing is this magnificent PSA 6 EX-MT 1911 T3 Turkey Red Cy POP 4 marvel bested by only a single PSA 7! The last VCP recorded sale for a PSA 6 Young was some eight years ago (rendering it irrelevant), with the sole 7 fetching an extraordinary $123K in July 2021. The majestic offering emanates brilliant eye appeal via its awe-inspiring Young pitching pose ably assisted by the sparkling green grass and yellow/orange hued setting. Relatively clean surfaces only exhibit two diminutive black spots on the upper right border, and mild corner wear is consistent with the revered assessment. The final compliment is a clean checklist verso, with this extremely rare for the grade keepsake serving as a sheer reminder of Cy Young's amazing 22-year dominance that not only resulted in 511 wins but an additional record-setting 749 complete games in 815 starts!
