Description

    1909-11 T206 Hindu (Brown) Cy Young Portrait SGC 60 EX 5. Cy Young's 511 career wins are nearly 100 in front of any other pitcher that has ever played the game. It is a benchmark that will likely never be approached, let alone bested. The annual Cy Young award exhibits the fact that no other pitcher's name is so completely synonymous with baseball excellence as Young's. His T206 portrait, the work of noted photographer Carl Horner is the quintessential depiction of Young that so many have come to identify him with. Few cards demand more awe and amazement than does this card at any grade level. This bright contemporary collectible is a worthy showpiece of the famed 511-game winner. The front displays a well-centered, vivid portrait of precise registration surrounded by a bright, clean white frame. That alone would be enough but this card just doesn't stop disappointing. The reverse is just as clean as the front and displays a "Hindu Cork Tip Cigarette" advertisement in the distinctive brown ink. From a new to the hobby collection, this is fantastic copy destined for the finest T206 collection and a huge addition for master set builders! Graded SGC 60 EX 5 for some modest wear at corner tips. SGC has graded nine Hindu T206 cards of Young covering all poses. This is the highest confirmed example of his "portrait" with one card (unknown pose) recorded higher.
