1912 T202 Triple Folder "Ty Cobb Steals Third" Cobb/Jennings
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,880.00
Graded EX 5 by PSA. Exceptionally attractive high-grade example of the key classic Ty Cobb card from the T202 Hassan Triple Folders set. The "Ty Cobb Steals Third" center-panel card, with Ty Cobb and Hugh Jennings on the end panels, is the premier card featuring Cobb in the T202 set. In the eyes of most collectors, this is the card that defines the T202 set, the classic combination of center and end-panels. T202 Triple Folders are one of the most condition sensitive prewar issues, and are often downgraded due to the most minute flaws that are characteristic of the issue. That is why a PSA EX 5 Triple Folder is statistically a far better card, and often has a far superior appearance, than a PSA EX 5 card from many other vintage sets. The offered example is bright and crisp, with snow-white borders, four sharp corners, and vibrant colors. Centered 55/45 L/R and 35/65 T/B. The very subtle irregular natural cut along the top and bottom (very difficult to see but present on this card) is not uncommon with T202s due to their method of production. This extraordinary high-grade example would qualify as a highlight for any serious Ty Cobb or prewar-card collection. SMR value for the assigned grade is $2,300. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,880.00
