Description


Offered is a mailed and canceled US Government postcard signed by the great Cy Young. The card was mailed to Cy Young by a collector in New York, for whom Young signed the card boldly in fountain pen and returned to Mr. Fred Zeleind. It is postmarked from Newcomerstown, Ohio, on February 16, 1951, with the significance being Newcomerstown was Young’s hometown, and he lived there most of his life. Card has a vintage tape mark along the entire top edge, as the card was previously attached to the reverse of a Perez-Steele postcard. There is also a newspaper image cutout of Young attached to the signature side, with a JSA sticker LOA on the mailing side (cert #X96890). A tremendous item signed by Cy Young, and most likely personally mailed back to the collector by Young himself, postmarked from his longtime hometown. Encapsulated in a PSA/DNA authentication holder.
