Cy Young was one of the greatest pitchers in baseball history, and still continues to hold records more than 100 years after his career ended! The Cy Young award, given to the previous season's best pitcher was created after his death in 1955. This silver bar is the second release in the Elemental Baseball Greats series, and unusually, is made in three different versions by using different baseball cards on the reverse of the bar. The baseball cards are from the famed T-206 series issued by 16 different brands produced by American Tobacco. The cards are very sought after today due to their rarity and full colour printing.
The obverse of this bar mimics the cigarette packaging that the T-206 cards were contained in.
The reverse of the bar has a sepia-toned photograph of Cy Young in his wind-up, about to throw another pitch. The right side of the bar contains one of three different baseball cards issued in the T-206 series of cards. All of the bars are numbered, and with a limited mintage of only 1,909 total Cy Young versions these are sure to be a real baseball lover's collector item.
Please note that there are three different versions of this bar, and we are unable to guarantee which item you will receive. We are also unable to honour requests for a specific version.
This bar comes in a numbered acrylic case, packaged within a true-to-era sealed cigarette case.
