1909-1911 T206 Ty Cobb Green Background
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $4,930.00
Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Crisp, clean, extremely attractive example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. The Green Background pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. This is a very sharp-looking card bordering on Excellent condition. Rarely does a card graded VG-EX have such outstanding eye-appeal. Flawless registration, with one tiny surface wrinkle on Cobb's shoulder (detectable only under extremely strong light, responsible for the downgrade from EX to VG-EX), clean both front and back, centered slightly toward the top border, square corners with very light, even wear. Sweet Caporal reverse. This is a strong Vg-Ex/Ex example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $4,930.00
