Rare and desirable tobacco tin features the same image of Cy Young that appears on his popular T206 portrait card.  An important antique artifact that dates to Young's playing days, this is one of just two tobacco tins from the era that depict the image of a specific player (the other being the Ty Cobb tobacco tin).  His image, which appears on both sides of the cylindrical tin, features the portrait flanked by crossed bats and glove, a facsimile autograph and illustrated players.  The Cy Young Tobacco tin is among the most coveted of all player-related tins, having transcended the baseball hobby by becoming equally desirable among collectors of tobacciana.  The piece exhibits scattered surface wear and abrasions, small dents and scratches (notably around the edges) and a few areas of light rust or discoloration.  Still, the Cy Young Tobacco tin is typically found with considerable damage and wear; this is quite an attractive and clean example.  An outstanding display.
