One of the most astonishing 19th century card related discoveries in recent years, this rookie-era cabinet photo of the legendary Cy Young from 1891-92 featuring what is believed to be the earliest image of Young in a professional baseball uniform. Possibly the first image ever produced of Young in a major league uniform, the crystal clear, window-like photograph captures Young as he poses in a formal studio setting. Photographer’s credit, “John H. Ryder – Cleveland, Ohio,” appears both on the base of the mount and reverse. This specific image of Young has been seen on a rare 1891 Cleveland Spiders team composite baseball schedule display, dating its origin to his first full season in professional baseball and warranting possible consideration as his rookie issue.
