Description

    1910 E98 "Set of 30" Cy Young (Green) "Black Swamp Find" PSA Mint 9 (OC). It's always a good thing when you can refer to a 100-year old baseball card and use the word "mint" in the description. This card is physically mint condition but was cut leaving the glorious portrait Cy (Irv) Young resting to the left and a slight diamond cut which isn't unique.

    More Information:

    1910 E98 "Set of 30" Black Swamp Find - #16 on the PSA Set Registry - 6.59 Grade Average!

    The "Black Swamp" find and the task of auctioning the collection were unprecedented in the hobby. The game plan was to sell the best-of-the-best of the over twenty complete sets of player/color combinations first, amid much fanfare, and continue until the lowest-graded set was ready to be auctioned. In Black Swamp language, "lowest" is a relative term. Feedback by many was to wait until this last set came to auction thinking they would represent the best bargain. Heritage has decided to call a quarterback sneak of sorts by offering that set now, the lowest Black Swamp set generating a grade average of 6.59. To put that in perspective, that average is a full grade and a half over the #1 pre-Black Swamp E98 registered set. As you view the lots that follow, you will have to remind yourself more than a few times that, yes, these stunning cards are the bottom of that nearly pristine barrel, your best chance at a budget-friendly purchase from the greatest hobby find of recent memory.
