The great Cy Young is depicted on this postcard, "delivering the goods" near the end of his incredible career.  Young would pitch in parts of three more seasons in Cleveland and Boston before retiring, but his 1908 season was still legendary.  On August 13 of that year, the American League honored Young by not scheduling any games, instead sending a group of "all-star" players to Boston to play an exhibition game against the Red Sox.  More than 20,000 fans attended to see Young pitch a few innings and receive accolades from players and fans alike.  This postcard was somehow made available to attendees of that game, on August 13, 1908.

This is an exceptional example, graded GOOD 2 by SGC due to overall wear at the edges and corners, and a very faint pencil narking of the price of $60.00 written in pencil on the reverse.  The writing is the card's most prominent flaw, the eye appeal is outstanding.
