Description



It's a simple matter recognizing a guy's importance when they name a major award after him. "Cy" Young (d.1955) amassed 511 wins during his career, a mark that will never be approached, let alone surpassed. In honor of his mound mastery, the Cy Young Award was established a year after his demise in 1956 to recognize the best pitchers in Major League Baseball. Award yourself a HOFer autograph of major importance with this "Cy" Young signed photo.

 

This clean, glossy 7x9 photo (EX+) in a news service type with an AP blurb sheet attached to the back. Young is seen handing a pen back to a giddy Bill Veeck following a contract signing with the Cleveland Indians at the age of eighty. The attached sheet cites this event as "March 29" and is dated "3/30/47", while the photo reverse is stamp-dated "4/1/47" and also stamped with an "Associated Press" credit. Located across his strong right arm, Young's highly coveted autograph shows desirable ("8") potency.

 

Ok, so here we have a pleasing autograph from one of the game's true legends who passed away decades before the dawn of paid autograph lines, on a well-preserved seventy year old photo from the leading news agency in the land, what else could you want, oh yeah respected certification, well you get that too as this important signature is accompanied by a full photo LOA from JSA.
