    Description

    1909 E97 C.A. Briggs Co. Cy Young (Boston) SGC Fair 1.5. Offered is a visually pleasing example of the key player from the E97 Briggs series. The set probably failed to ignite sales as it included many obscure players with only three HoFers which may explain why they are so very difficult to find today. There are two versions of Cy Young in the set, on which his team affiliation is cited as either "Boston, Nat'l" or "Cleveland Amer." and the offered card's caption states "BOSTON." Particularly astute collectors will recognize that the image on the piece actually pictures Irv Young, a left-handed pitcher from the time with a strong resemblance. This card's corners exhibit some rounding with some reverse surface chipping and creases. Graded SGC Fair 1.5.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $800 - up.
