January 2010 Auction
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Tendered for auction is a delightfully presentable example of Cy Young's dazzling, orange-backed 1909 E92 Croft's Candy issue that ranks as one of just 4 total specimens on record at PSA. Uniformly rounded VG/EX to EX corners join sharp NM or better edges on all sides but the EX to EX/MT right boundary, which shows some light chipping on the front. Both surfaces display impressively clean qualities for the issue, with no real perceivable stains or paper loss. Unquestionably one of the most presentable examples of this colorful candy card we've ever had the privilege to offer, it appears to have been limited to its current holder due to a very well camouflaged, inch-long, diagonal wrinkle beneath the upper left corner. Both this and the tolerable perimeter wear, however, are immediately counterbalanced by a perfectly preserved image of the very finest order. Precise, black ink outlines separate Cy's image from a predominantly clean backdrop positively ablaze with coruscating pixels of orange and red. Truly scintillating!
