    Description

    1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal 350/25 Cy Young (Glove Shows) PSA NM-MT 8 - None Higher. Though Young's public lamentations of pitcher coddling were undoubtedly heartfelt, he must have realized on some level that the movement toward decreasing workloads had cemented his legacy, and ensured that his career record of 511 Major League victories would endure eternally. It has been over a quarter century since the last 25+ victory season was posted, with Oakland A's right hander Bob Welch earning the 1990 American League Cy Young Award for the feat. Had he begun his career with that performance, then repeated it each season for two decades, Welch would still have come up a bit short. Young's career victories record is widely, and properly, considered the most untouchable in American sport.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. Presented is a Young commemorative that likewise finds itself unsurpassed in achievement. The PSA census notes over 850 submissions of the "Glove Shows" pose of Cy Young (counting qualified submissions) covering any and all brands. Only nine have survived to achieve a PSA NM-MT 8 rating, there are none higher. A check of every other brand of this pose shows another in higher grade is currently unknown! Worthy of its status as one of the finest examples known of any T206 brand! A truly stunning example of one of the leading figures from the hobby's most beloved tobacco issue.
