    1908 Victory Pub. Co. Cy Young "Free of Vices" Postcard SGC 50 VG/EX 4. John Esch Collection. By 1908, Cy Young had been in the league for 18 seasons. Despite being 41 years old, Young still baffled hitters, as he held the opposition to a miniscule 1.26 ERA. He was well-known for his old-fashioned country values, as this postcard attests. A black and white photo of Young is surrounded by images of the vices that had been known to seduce other ballplayers of his day. Published by Victory Pub. Co. of New Philadelphia, OH, Copyright 1908, the heyday of pictorial postcards, this is a fine example of an early 20th century piece. Graded SGC 50 VG/EX 4. Unused as mail correspondence.

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