    1911-14 D304 Brunners Bread Cy Young SGC 80 EX/NM 6. An image recalling the pitching follow-through of the great Cy Young is certain to quicken the pulse of the most seasoned baseball enthusiast and, as rendered on the front of this scarce piece, the viewer's excitement is further intensified by bright colors, a sharply drawn player likeness, and an almost palpable sense of history. What was once an afterthought to the purchase of a loaf of bread -- nearly 100 years ago, now -- has evolved into a worthy prize that very seldom becomes available for widespread enjoyment. The opportunity to observe the mound icon in this notably rare, extremely favorable context represents a meaningful event that will be remembered -- among all of those who understandably succumb to the innate fascination of the elusive D304's -- long after most others have faded.

    This example shares its admirable tier with just a single counterpart (one higher) in SGC's census accounting, wherein only fourteen copies -- in total -- have been tabulated. The knowledgeable viewer will conclude at once that the relic has been conservatively graded, as the mildest, fleeting touches of corner wear can be discerned only under the most diligent scrutiny, and its overall presentation quality is astoundingly bright. All characteristics of the illustration are strong and easily deflect challenge, while centering, surfaces, and cardback inking are correspondingly superior.
