Description

Black Swamp Cy Young! Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Hobby legend holds than this 1910 E98 Cy Young (Irv Young) with a red background was one of nearly 700 cards from the designation uncovered by a Defiance, Ohio family in 2012. Resting untouched for over a century, these pristine specimens were discovered in a box in an attic. Each card stack was tightly secured by antique twine and had entirely escaped the harsh Midwestern elements. Considerable national media attention was attached to the story as national television outlets and newspapers reported the details of the remarkable find. As one of the Hall of Famers who came to light, the offered 1910 E98 Cy Young (Irv Young) is a worthy acquisition for the advanced pre-war candy card specialist. A slight diamond cut tilt is overwhelmed by razor-sharp corners, creamy white edges and lush color schemes with bold typeface. The checklist reverse detailing a legendary lineup is problem-free. So attractive is the offered Cy Young that it is has been reprinted to showcase the grandeur of the “Black Swamp” offering. One of 8 at the grading level with none better.
