    Description

    1953 Cy Young Signed Albertype Hall of Fame Plaque, PSA/DNA Mint 9. Among all players from the first centennial of baseball, just one achieved 500 victories as a pitcher, and that was legendary Cy Young. Perhaps more amazing is that, in the century following Young's final game, there is still not one player who has approached that record. With so many records being broken by modern players, the all-time victories mark may be the safest of all records, with Walter Johnson coming the closest at 417.

    The offered lot is an Albertype Company Hall of Fame Plaque postcard from 1953 that is also postmarked from the same year. Young has signed at the bottom underneath the plaque in 8/10 ink. The very tips of the "Y's" and "G" in his signature trail off the card, while the postmark on the front completely misses the signature. The card itself is postally used, and has slightly soft corners with a very small piece of torn paper on the back edge. Always in demand, Cy Young signatures on this medium are especially popular with HOF Plaque collectors. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, Mint 9. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
