Description1909-10 E97 C.A. Briggs Cy Young (Cleveland) PSA VG 3 - Only Six PSA-Graded Examples. From the John Esch Collection. The E97 C.A. Briggs "Lozenge Makers" has always been a fascinating entry. Pinning down an exact date of issue is difficult. The roster features names you won't find in many other sets and just three HoFers - Jimmie Collins, Willie Keeler and "Cy" Young who is actually Irv Young. Cards are found in both color on thin cardstock and in Black & White versions. Cy Young is the key entry and he is represented with a colorful and finely detailed portrait. On the mound - Irv was no Cy. "Young" can be found with two team affiliations, the more common is "Boston" and the rare version which we are offering here is "Cleveland." Graded PSA VG 3. This is the only card graded VG with three higher. There are just six total examples entered on the PSA census!
Guide Value or Estimate: $1,500 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
