Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Crisp, clean, very 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, very strong for VG-EX, with outstanding eye-appeal. Flawless registration, with a deep green background, clean both front and back, centered very slightly toward the right border, even corner wear (just a hint too much to qualify for EX, but not far off), and no creases. 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 $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $3,818.75
