Issued continuously from 1902 to 1911, the National Sporting Life company’s W600 set consists of more than 650 cards with many un-checklisted or never seen. These highly desirable portraits were taken by famed photographer Carl Horner, with the images mounted on a thick cardboard frame measuring 5 x 7.5 inches. They were offered only as a redemption mail-in program, and are one of the most desirable cabinet-style baseball cards in the entire hobby. This Cy Young example is one of the most important cards in the set, and displays much nicer than the assigned grade. It portrays Young in his Boston uniform, which is significantly more desirable than the Young in street clothes variety. All imperfections are relegated to the periphery of the mount, with the uniformed central image of Young remaining in Near Mint or better condition. The four corners of the mount show even wear, with the upper right also containing a light crease. The reverse contains some light paper loss near the bottom edge, with the name "Young, Denton True" written at the top in black marker. Despite the imperfections, this cabinet card is quite rare and highly desirable. This is one of only TWO Cy Young in uniform W600 cabinet cards PSA has ever graded. PSA GOOD 2 (MK).
