1911 M116 Sporting Life Ty Cobb - Pastel
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $2,937.50
Graded EX 60 by SGC. Very sharp looking example of Ty Cobb from the M116 Sporting Life set, one of the most popular of all 1910-era issues. M116s have always been especially appreciated by collectors for their distinctive style and rarity relative to other tobacco cards of the era. Bright and extremely clean both front and back. The corners are square with just the slightest hint of wear, keeping this card from a higher grade. The reverse is flawless, with the advertising for Sporting Life printed crisply and boldly in blue. The centering is ever so slightly low towards the bottom border. This is a very attractive high-grade example of one of Ty Cobb's most classic cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $2,937.50
