1909 Croft's Swiss Milk Cocoa Cy Young

Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $1,527.50

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Cy Young card from the 1909 E92 Croft's Cocoa set, with reverse advertising for "Croft's Swiss Milk Cocoa" of Philadelphia on the reverse. The same designs were also issued with advertising on the reverse for Croft's & Allen Candy. It appears that both varieties of these cards were issued by the Croft & Allen Co. of Philadelphia to be handed out as advertising items to promote their candy and cocoa, which, as noted on the back of this card, is "Served Hot at our fountain 11 South 15th St. Montague & Co. Philadelphia, Pa." The offered sample card of Hall of Fame pitcher Cy Young has a flawless image set against a vibrant orange background. No creases. Centered approximately 85/15 left to right with a slight diagonal tilt to the image. (Note: Slight factory miscuts are not uncommon with this scarce issue.) The reverse is perfectly clean with bold black text. This is an attractive mid-grade sample card of one of the key Hall of Famers from this rare set. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,527.50
