1909-11 T206 White Borders Ty Cobb Sovereign Backs Collection (3)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,972.00

Three of the four classic poses of Ty Cobb from the T206 White Borders series, each with Sovereign backs. Sovereign is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. To find three different Ty Cobbs, all with Sovereign backs, is particularly noteworthy and unusual. All three cards have been graded and encapsulated by GAI. The GAI grades are as follows: Green portrait, Good 2; Red portrait, VG 3; and Bat off shoulder, VG 3. Each card displays far better than the technically accurate assigned grades. All three have very clean backs. Aside from a light crease or two, each would otherwise grade Vg-Ex or Vg-Ex/Ex. A very solid and attractive collection of classic Ty Cobb tobacco cards, representing three of the four Cobb cards in the T206 set. Total 3 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,972.00
