1908 A. C. Williams Cy Young Real-Photo Postcard

Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $940.00

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Cy Young was 42-years-old and one of the game's greatest legends at the tail end of his career when featured in a classic pitching pose in his Boston Red Sox uniform on this rare postcard. "Copyright by A. C. Williams 1908" appears in white letters along the lower right edge. It is likely that this is a "one-card set" as no other subjects with this imprint have yet been seen. Printed in black letters below the image is the caption "Cy Delivering the Goods." The card (5-3/8 x 3-1/4 inches) has some light corner and edge wear. Although the card is technically in Vg-Ex condition, the central image area has a strong Excellent overall appearance. The card has never been mailed and has no writing on the postcard reverse. (Note: This card is misidentified by The Standard Catalog and the PSA label as "R.C. Williams"; it is actually clearly identified on the reverse as being published by "A.C. Williams, 74 Revere St., Boston, Mass.) This is one of the most striking, visually exciting, and unusual of all Cy Young cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $940.00
