Description

    Circa 1909 Cy Young Photograph by Paul Thompson, PSA/DNA Type 1. If the image looks familiar to you, you're likely a tobacco card collector. This haunting photographic portrait of the sport's most victorious pitcher was utilized by the creators of the T205 tobacco card series of 1911, Young's final season on the mound. Here we find the aging legend gazing skyward from the Cleveland Naps dugout, where esteemed baseball photographer Paul Thompson makes fine use of the contrast of light and shadow. Thompson's stamping and a handwritten identifier, likely Thompson's own, appears on reverse. Photo measures 5x7" and presents in stunning NRMT condition. Certainly one of the most significant Young images ever rendered, from one of the greatest luminaries of early sports photography. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
