    Description

    1902-11 W600 Sporting Life Type 3 Cabinet Cy Young PSA EX 5. Few matters in sports are as certain as the immortality of Cy Young's career victories record. Another thought that doesn't challenge the law of probability is would any card collector worth his salt not want a W600 cabinet featuring the man so great they named an award after him. Sporting Life cabinets are on par with the most striking premiums ever produced. The absence of vivid colors fails to lessen their intense visual appeal. Their lack of availability today is easily explained--the cabinets were only available through a mail-in redemption process that severely limited initial distribution. The wide array of dangers awaiting an oversized (5x7.5") paper product over the course of a passing century did the rest. We should be grateful for having the known surviving population.

    Denton "Cy" Young is featured two ways within the W600 universe. This is his photographic portrait taken by esteemed early baseball photographer Carl Horner. His central portrait is without flaw and is now his definitive depiction so familiar to both tobacco and candy card collectors. Graded PSA EX 5. Of the grand total of just four W600 cabinets of Young on the PSA census, this is the second highest entry. By any standard of measure, this is a thrilling addition that will take the owner's collection to a whole new elevated level of respectability.
