    1911 E94 Close Candy "Old" Cy Young (Olive) PSA VG-EX 4. John Esch collection. Young's career victories record is widely, and properly, considered the most untouchable in American sport. Modern baseball's movement toward limiting workloads has cemented Young's legacy, and ensured that his career record of 511 Major League victories will endure eternally. After almost twenty seasons Young became the face of the new American League's Boston franchise upon its founding, winning over forty percent of the Red Sox' games for its 1901 debut season and earning the AL Triple Crown with top marks in victories, strikeouts and ERA. In 1903 the "Canton Cyclone" would throw the first pitch of World Series competition, notching two of the five wins required in claiming the first Fall Classic title. His final twenty victory season came at the ripe old age of forty-one. One of the final cards issued during his career is this scarce E94 Close candy card from 1911. Our offered card is a solid mid-grade example with no major faults save for a crease in the upper right corner with "Old" Cy surrounded a lush "Olive" background. Graded PSA VG-EX 4. One of a total of only twenty-six cards reviewed by PSA. Issued near the end of his legendary career in 1911, his E94 is one his more difficult 20th Century cards to acquire.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
