    1942 Cy Young Signed State of Ohio Driver's License, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8. His name is synonymous with pitching excellence, and his career tally of 511 Major League victories is the most untouchable in American sports. The first-ballot Hall of Famer was seventy-five years of age when he signed this motor vehicle operator's license, utilizing the very rare and highly coveted "Denton T. Young" autograph variation. His black fountain pen ink rates 9/10, and the license exhibits edge wear from its time in the legendary pitcher's wallet but no other flaws of consequence. Dimensions 2.75x3.75".

    The license is consigned to auction by the grandson of Charles Leech, Sr., a fellow member of Young's local Elk's Club lodge. Included in the lot are photocopies of a newspaper article that pictures these lodge brothers together, and of a letter Young wrote in support of his friend's candidacy for postmaster of Newcomerstown, Young's hometown. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
